An event for women and their friends

Every year Ada Lovelace Day is celebrated. This date refers to the great Ada Byron, born in England in the nineteenth-century. Ada, for those who do not already know her, was a self-taught mathematician responsible for creating the first computer program ever known in the world: algorithms for calculations used in the analytical engine of Charles Babbage. She entered the history of computing as being the first computer programmer. This date that serves to celebrate the achievements of Ada is also used to discover and encourage other Adas around the world to engage with technology and science.

When and How

This year, Ada Lovelace Day will take place on October 16th and KDE will celebrate this date by promoting some activities to integrate more people, especially women, into our community. The idea is to have tutorials on IRC (#kde-tutorials on freenode) - or Google Hangout (details will be announced later) on some KDE tools and how to get involved with the community.
