The Queen Of Code
Short film on computer programming pioneer badass Grace Hopper who, among many things, worked on the first computer, invented the first languages that used words rather than symbols, and even had a pirate flag in her office in the Pentagon. She even had a clock that told the time backwards, keeping her on her toes, hating complacency - video embedded below:
You probably don’t know the name Grace Hopper, but you should.
As a rear admiral in the U.S. Navy, Hopper worked on the first computer, the Harvard Mark 1. And she headed the team that created the first compiler, which led to the creation of COBOL, a programming language that by the year 2000 accounted for 70 percent of all actively used code. Passing away in 1992, she left behind an inimitable legacy as a brilliant programmer and pioneering woman in male-dominated fields.
I can’t embed the video but you can watch it here - definately worth the fifteen minutes of your time.
