A little less than two hundred years ago, Ada Lovelace, daughter of famous English poet Lord Byron, corresponded with Charles Babbage, a person credited for originating the concept of a programmable computer. Charles Babbage held Ada in high esteem. Apparently, Ada was a brainy woman who contributed to some of Babbage’s ideas. A few claim that Ada was the first computer programmer. But, if Charles Babbage is the first one, then the writer says that Ada could be the first debugger as Charles Babbage once talks about a ‘grave mistake’ that Ada found out. This might be a disputable issue but the writer asserts that ‘Ada was one of the best writers about computing ever’.
