If Augusta Ada King, Countess of Lovelace, or more lovingly known as Ada Lovelace, would have been alive today, she would have been avidly involved in WordPress.
Now, many would ask who was Ms. Lovelace?
Well, she wrote the first algorithm intended to be carried out by a general machine. This makes her the world’s first computer programmer.
So, why will she pick WordPress?
“Code is poetry,” says WordPress and in a book titled Ada, the Enchantress of Numbers: Prophet of the Computer Age, Ada’s approach is regarded as “poetical science”. So, there you go—a perfect match.
While Ms. Lovelace is not present between us, there are many ladies actively involved in the world of WordPress. On the eve of International Women’s Day, we present a fitting tribute to these ladies.
It is because of these ladies (and many like them) that WordPress is such a great success. We truly appreciate your work. Nothing much would have been possible without you.
In the end, do remember to appreciate the ladies around you. Because as the song says: “Who runs the world? Girls!”
(P.S.: If you think someone will be a good addition to the list, do let us know in the comments section.)
