Test:
who made scientific discoveries:
a man or a woman?

Check your knowledge
On the Eve of International Women's Day, our team's prepared a small test for you. Check if you can determine who made unusual discoveries in the information technology field, and in the end you'll get interesting results :) Good luck!
Test
Guess who?
Check if you can guess who made unusual discoveries in the tech field: a man or a woman?
Start
The first computer program
Nope :) That was a woman. Her name is Ada Lovelace. She was an aristocrat, a mother of three children and an English mathematician. In 1842-1843 Ada was translating a Charles Babbage (inventor of the first computer machine) lecture. The translation was accompanied by Ada's notes and in total exceeded the notes of the lecture several times. One of Ada's comments turned out to be a description of the algorithm for computation the Bernoulli number by the Babbage computing machine. Experts consider this algorithm to be the first computer program. Ada Lovelace is considered the first programmer in history.

A radio-controlled torpedo
Nope:) That was a woman. Her name is Hedy Lamarr. She wasn't only a famous actress, but also became a great inventor. In 1942, together with composer George Anteyle, she patented a system that allows torpedoes to be controlled remotely. Thanks to the developed secret communication systems, the torpedo couldn't be intercepted or blacked out. The patent has become the basis for communication with the extended-spectrum that is used today everywhere, from mobile phones to Wi-Fi.

A computer mouse
You're right! It was an American scientist at Stanford University Douglas Engelbart. He invented a device with a pair of small spinning disks that can be used to freely move the cursor around the screen. Due to the fact that the cable exited from the back of the device, it was later named the "mouse".

Key combination CTRL + C, CTRL + V
You are right! One of our favourite key combinations was invented by an American computer scientist Larry Tesler. Tesler worked for Apple Computer, Amazon.com, and Yahoo !. He studied computer science at Stanford University in 1960. He died in February 2020.

JavaScript - a programming language
Yep:) The programmer's name is Brendan Eich. JavaScript first appeared in 1995 and makes web pages more interactive.

The first hypertext fiction

You are wrong. In 1986, the self-taught programmer Judy Malloy created the first hypertext novel, Uncle Roger. While reading it, the reader could click and move between fragments in any order. This influenced the history and computer technology development.

An emoticon
Great:) That was Scott Elliot Fahlman, a professor at Carnegie Mellon University. Falman was the first to suggest using a sequence of characters :-) as an emoticon. That was in 1982.

A compiler
Nope:) In the middle of the 20th century, Grace Hopper developed the first compiler for a programming language. This event's become revolutionary in the history of technology development. She's also created one of the first high-level programming languages, COBOL. It is also believed that Grace Hopper popularized the term "debugging" to eliminate computer malfunctions.

Coco Chanel
It seems you aren't very interested in the high-tech world. Don't despair, now you know who invented the emoticon and who invented the compiler, and you can show off your knowledge at a meeting with your friends :)

Clara Zetkin
Congratulations! You've made a good fist of the test and you can determine who made this or that scientific discovery in the field of high technologies :)

Maria Sklodowska Curie
Great! It seems that you not only easily identify the inventor, but you are also well versed in science. Hold onto your hat, it looks like Lucky Hunter will soon "hunt" you for one of the coolest companies :)
