Widely known as the first computer programmer for her work on Charles Babbage’s Analytical Engine, Ada Lovelace is an icon of women in science. Ada Lovelace: The Making of a Computer Scientist is the first detailed account of how and what Ada learned in the absence of a formal education, with Ursula Martin (the second ever female professor at St Andrews) delving into previously unpublished archival material to explore Ada’s astonishing intellectual life.
