"Ada and the Engine"

Arts & TheaterAda and the Engine

From prolific playwright Lauren Gunderson, Ada and the Engine is a whimsical scientific history that once again proves the future is, and has always been, female. Ada Lovelace, the only legitimate child of the amorous poet Lord Byron, had a love of her own: mathematics. Well, that … plus a certain polymath-inventor, Charles Babbage, famous as "the father of the computer." It's true that Babbage invented the hardware — the Analytic Engine — but the language, the song, the soul of the thing, the programming: that was all Ada.
