idc if its not #gracehopper day. She’s just awesome people. I mean, she worked on the 1st computer, the MARK1 as a college professor, joined the Navy at 37 years old (the cut off age was 38 I think) to join the fight in WWII, and then worked on the 2nd computer, the ENIAC and THEN created the first compiler – back when all her bosses said, ”Computers can’t be taught to use English – they’re for math only”.

And they were wrong. And she was right. Awesome lady.
