CoM – Il Blog di Carlo Becchi Compreresti un Raggio della Morte usato, da quest'uomo?


100 Anni di Grace Hopper

Esattamente 100 anni fa, il 9 dicembre 1906, nasceva Grace Brewster Murray Hopper, una delle figure più rilevanti e carismatiche nel mondo dell'informatica moderna. In 86 anni di vita ci ha lasciato il primo programma per computer moderno (un nastro perforato di carta per l'Harward Mark I) il primo proto-compilatore (A-0 per UNIVAC), contributi fondamentali ai linguaggi COBOL e ForTran ma soprattutto uno sforzo costante per rendere l'informatica democratica ed accessibile a tutti.

Questa estate, la vita straordinaria di questa donna eccezionale, è stata protagonista dell'episodio speciale del podcast Tecnica Arcana "Le Signore del Digitale #1: G. Hopper".
