Programming in the 19th century

As I was searching more info in of typewriter history I found this fun fact: Today is the day of Ada Lovelace (1815 – 1852) , this british woman is considered as the first programmer, for her work in ¬†creating an algorithm designated for being processed by a machine. ¬†As part of this celebration Brown’s University organized the second edition of the Edit-a-ton, in which women are invited to create or edit articles in Wikipedia about other women whom contributed to Science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
