|10 December 2015||Ada Lovelace's 200th anniversary. On the occasion of Ada Lovelace's 200th birthday, Ada-Europe wants to join the celebrations taking place these days around this remarkable date. The Ada User Journal is publishing valuable materials celebrating Ada's anniversary, including a reprint of "Lovelace & Babbage and the Creation of the 1843 Notes", by J. Fuegi and J. Francis, producers of the documentary "To Dream Tomorrow" (AUJ 36.2); and also a reprint of the original "Notes to the translation of the Sketch of The Analytical Engine" by Ada Lovelace, a thorough description of the machine (AUJ 36.3). A number of events are taking place these days to celebrate Ada's anniversary, with active presence of Ada-Europe members, such as the 200th Birthday of Ada Lovelace event (Ada-Belgium and the KU Leuven University), or the Ada Lovelace Symposium organised by Oxford University, with the presence of Ada-Europe's Honorary member John Barnes (John's slides available here). AdaCore has produced a "brief summary that highlights her life and career, as well as key milestones and resources for the language that bears her name" (available here). Happy Birthday Lady Ada!|
