Diversity in Tech – Ada Lovelace Festival

Women have contributed to the emergence of the digital age from the very beginning. Among them was Ada Byron Countess of Lovelace (1815–1852), a mathematician now considered a software pioneer, after whom this event is named. In the mid-19th century, she developed a program for Charles Babbage’s “Analytical Engine”, a forerunner of the modern computer which was sadly never completed.

The Ada Lovelace Festival is an unique Knowledge and Networking Platform for Tech Talents and Tech Enthusiasts. It is open to all who want to be part of it – regardless of age, gender identity, disability, religion, worldview, sexual orientation or origin.
