Happy Birthday Ada Lovelace

Today, December 10 2014, is the 199th birthday of Augusta Ada Byron,
aka Lady Ada Lovelace, recognised by many as the first programmer.

The programming language Ada was named in her honor.

I'd like to remind everyone that a promotional image combining the
historical figure of Ada Lovelace and the programming language Ada
is available at [1].

Useful to know is that an "Ada Mascot Competion" [2] is ongoing.
It would be particularly fitting if some of the proposals would
be based on a modernized Ada Lovelace image.  Not many programming
languages have the name of the first female programmer... ;-)

Finally, remember that deadlines for submissions to several Ada
events are upcoming: the Ada Developers Room [3] at FOSDEM 2015 in
Brussels, and the Ada-Europe 2015 conference [4] in Madrid, Spain.
Share your experience at an Ada event in 2015, the 200th anniversary
year of Ada Lovelace!

Happy birthday, Lady Ada!
