And for the first ever programmer is considered Ada Lovelace (daughter of George and Byron), which developed the first published algorithm written with the intention of a machine!

Since last year (and the first edition of the scholarship "New technologies for girls"), there was a slight increase in interest in the directions of information technology among women by 0.8%, while 5 years steadily declining number of men studying the directions in this group. Thus, things are going in the right direction, women increasingly believe in your abilities, but certainly need active support.
