Ada Lovelace turned her powerful imagination into a vision of the future, predicting the impact of computers on human life. Lovelace had a unique education and embraced mathematics. She became one of the biggest believers in engineer Charles Babbage's ideas for calculation machines. This graphic biography shows how Lovelace helped spread awareness of what an early computer could do and how she became one of the first computer programmers. It also shows how Lovelace pushed back against doubts about calculation machines and against her own self-doubt.

Great introduction to the life and historical context of Ada Lovelace. This would be an excellent introduction for a young reader who is not yet up to the longer annotated graphic novel by Sydney Padua. It will spur questions and lay the foundation for more research into early computing history.
