Grace Murray Hopper Day

December 14, 2009

A co-worker of mine is doing his Annual Grace Murray Hopper presentation tomorrow.  Sadly, I will be missing it again, for the second year in a row.  I think Grace Hopper is inspiring and incredible.  She was a computer sceintist, mathematician, and physicist.  She created the first ever compiler for a computer programming language, and was the primary developer of the COBOL language.  She was so incredible that she had a naval warship named after her.  She is sometimes referred to as “Amazing Grace”.
