Summary
A computerized reconstruction of the life, times and work of Ada King, Countess of Lovelace, daughter of the famed poet Lord Byron and an amateur mathematician who wrote what is considered to be the first computer language back in the 19th century, during the Victorian era, predicted (quite accurately) its use in music, poetry and art, and is said by some to be the "mother of all programmers."
