    Ada Lovelace Was A Badass

    Genius, playboy, daredevil. Google celebrates the innovator's 197th birthday with a lovely doodle.

    It's rumored her hatred for poets and love of abacuses started young.

    And then those abacuses turned her into the world's first computer programmer.

    After she met Charles Babbage.

    Also her floral headresses brought all the academics to the yard.

    And she was fond of the gaming tables.

    TL;DR - Lovelace was a genius, playboy, daredevil.

    And she's so epic that even Google took a moment to applaud her today.
