Ada Lovelace Day!

Interesting! Today is ‘Ada Lovelace Day’! I am ashamed that being a women of science and technology, I never heard of this before 😦

As always, I must say: better late than never 🙂 So here are few info from the wiki:

Ada Lovelace Day” is an annual event celebrated on October 16th whose goal is to “raise the profile of women in science, technology, engineering and maths”. The Ada Initiative is a non-profit organization dedicated to increasing the involvement of women in the free culture and open source movements.

It is named after Ava Lovelace, was an English mathematician and writer chiefly known for her work on Charles Babbage’s early mechanical general-purpose computer, the analytical engine. Her notes on the engine include what is recognized as the first algorithm intended to be processed by a machine; thanks to this, she is sometimes considered the world’s first computer programmer.

The computer language Ada, created on behalf of the United States Department of Defense, was named after Ada Lovelace.


Photographing – Alphabets :)

The new camera I got, it turns out that using it just by reading few tutorial online,was not as easy as I thought! So, I started taking Photography I class at photouno. The instructor was amazing, I get to learn so many things about my camera, and how I should take pictures. A lot about exposures, light and frames. I feel much more comfortable taking pics now. I still have to continue taking more and more pictures to become a pro, but I am happy to at least know the basics. One of the best thing about the class was homework 🙂 I know homeworks almost never sounds fun, but in this case it was! One of the homework was to take pictures of alphabets in the nature, not the actual alphabet, but the representation of it around us! It was hard to find all of them, and I tried to get as many as I could! Here are some of them 🙂 I wish I had more time to take more of them, but its much better than taking none 🙂
