Ada Lovelace and cs4fn
The Department of Computer Science at the University of Oxford , in collaboration with the ‘Computer Science for Fun’ team at Queen Mary University of London have released a special Ada Lovelace issue of the cs4fn magazine to celebrate her 200th birthday. In a fun, offbeat way, this issue looks at Ada Lovelace’s life as a computer scientist and the legacy of the computer science she has inspired.
The magazine is already available online, and copies will also be sent free to thousands of schools across the UK.
For schools, our friends at the National Museum of Computing are holding a ‘Write a letter to Ada’ competition and there will be a special edition of the award winning schools magazine cs4fn from QMUL (http://ww.cs4fn.org)
