His work and contributions to the computer did not gain recognition until a century after his death. In fact, his ideas were so advanced computer technology with respect to the time that was necessary to develop a century because the machinery necessary to understand their comments and contributions.
The computer programming language Ada was named after Ada Lovelace. 
Ada Lovelace was the only legitimate daughter of the poet Lord Byron with his wife, Anne Isabella Milbanke.
It is the first computer programmer in history. Mathematics and physics, collaborated with Charles Babbage in the design of an analytical machine capable of solving differential equations.
He realized that the machine had more applications besides pure calculació and recognized the potential of the machine. In his notes work included what is now considered the first algorithm that was trying to carry out a machine. That is why it is considered the first programmer.
Even so Ada also always felt a strong attraction to the letters, i read poetry. He inherited some talent and love letters to his father.

A documentary on the history of modern computing. Mathematics Hannah Fry tells the story of Ada Lovelace, explores her story of Ada and her work with Charles Babbage, Inventor of the first steam powered computer, the Analytical Engine.
In a Victorian England that was “world of men”, it was a woman who proved to her colleagues that she could take the concept of the Analytical Machine further and demonstrate its true potential..
Work is pleasure: here are my top! Maybe it's good for the world (as I hinted before) that my efforts and ambitions be limited to the intellectual, and that this time will allow me to indulge in the study of x, i, with, instead of the sword, poison and intrigue
