Happy Birthday, Grace!

I’m one day late getting to this, but…
…Penny posted this comment on Let’s All Have a Party!

Posting this on the centenary of Grace Murray Hopper, born 9 December 1906. Math PhD from Yale in 1934, taught at Vassar till she joined the Naval Reserve during WWII and became a computer programmer. She’s credited with overseeing the development of COBOL. {for bio, see here]

I have a soft spot in my heart for Amazing Grace. Now THERE is a real geek goddess for you.

Do visit the link for Let’s All Have A Party! and see all the birthdays of fabulous women scientists and engineers that have been posted there. It’s very inspiring.
