Help raise the profile of women in science by joining IT Services and the Bodleian Libraries to celebrate the bicentenary of Ada Lovelace, the first computer programmer.
This October will mark the bicentenary of Ada Augusta Byron, otherwise known as Ada Lovelace, often acknowledged as the first computer programmer.
The Bodleian Libraries and IT Services are hosting a series of half-day workshops which hope to make a record-breaking impact on Wikipedia’s infamous gender imbalance.
As in previous years, there will be an edit-a-thon to create articles related to women in science and to wish happy birthday to Ada Lovelace with celebratory cake. This will happen on Tuesday 13 October. It will include an introduction to wiki editing, so is suitable for new and experienced wiki editors.
Each Wikipedia event is open to anyone with an interest in developing public understanding of women in science.
