Women In Technology

Pacific IT Pros Women in Technology

Women have played an important role in the advancement of computer technology.  The first computer program was written by Ada Lovelace in 1842.  It was an algorithm for generating Bernoulli numbers using Charles Babbage’s analytical machine.  Lovelace’s notes are important in the early history of computers as she foresaw the capability of computers to go beyond mere calculating or number-crunching while others, including Babbage who were focused only on these capabilities.  Lovelace died at the age of thirty-six, on 27 November 1852, from uterine cancer and bloodletting by her physicians.  She is buried next to her father at the Church of St. Mary Magdalene in Hucknall, Nottingham.  Ada’s work is commemorated on March 24 Ada Lovelace Day, a day to celebrate the achievements of women in technology and science an is the Mother of Computer Programming.

Pacific IT Professional promotes and supports women in computing and technology.

Pac IT Pros next Women in Tech meeting
The next PacITPros-WiT meeting will be Tuesday from 5:00-6:30pm at Microsoft’s San Francisco Offices – 555 California Street, Suite 200.  (3 blocks from the Montgomery BART Station.)  All Pac IT Pros members are welcome to attend.

The first PacITPros-WiT meeting was held Tuesday June 8, 2010 from 5:00-6:30pm.  This was an introductory meeting where we got to know one another, discuss the challenges women have in the technology field and setup a meeting location for those attending TechEd to meet for the WITI luncheon. WITI luncheons at TechEd in years past have always had outstanding presentations. The members of Pac IT Pros WiT will be looking for presentations to share at next month’s Pac IT Pros WiT meeting.
