(VIDEO) The Mother of the Modern World: Grace Hopper on Letterman MUST WATCH!


See on Scoop.itRule 4081

Grace Hopper was one of the first computer programmers ever (the Harvard Mark I calculator (1943)) and one of the designers of COBOL (gasp!)

She coined the term “debugging” for removing errors from computer programs.

MizWalidah‘s insight:

Its my pleasure to introduce to some of you the first person to operate and write the manual for the FIRST computer known to modern man; Admiral Grace Hopper.

Its good to know the mother of our modern world was this fricken sharp and had one hell of a sense of humor. She also, if you noticed, moved like someone half if not a 3rd her age. Has she written a book other than the first computer manual (jeesh!)?
