Even though we are constantly handling computers in our everyday life, few of us are aware of these mind-blowing information about computers that may be astounding. For your curiosity and knowledge, find out the core events that have resulted in the formation of modern day computers.
The Father of Programming was actually, a Mother:
Yes, the first ever computer programmer was a female named Ada Lovelace in the year of 1843 and British-born who translated Luigi Menabrea’s article named Analytical Engine. She elaborated a sequence of codes in her writing making her the very first programmer in the world. Read more about Python programming.
The very first computer bug was literally a bug:
The bug is a very common term we have been hearing lately, but few of us really know how this term originated in the first place. In 1947, this notation became highly popular when a moth was stuck in the relay wires of the computer that was being operated on. The presence of the moth greatly hindered the flow of the operating system and it started to run smoothly as soon as the bug was removed.
Steam powered computers:
Yes, the very first computers were powered by steam like that of early vehicles such as trains and cars invented during those times. The earliest of computer designs were humongous which were run by using six steam engines, designed by Charles Babbage. He was called the father of computer who addressed his creation as the Analytic Engine.
Computer programming would have been the most prevalent language:
There are so far 698 different computer programming languages available today, and no, we are not asking you to learn all of them. On top of this language, there are other languages such as Papua New Guinea having 836 different languages; hence capturing the first position in terms of prevalence of language.
