Grace Hopper

Today's Google doodle is for Grace Hopper, a computer programmer who would have been 107 today.

Grace was an admiral in the US Navy and worked on one of the first computers in 1945. She worked on the committee that created the COBOL programming language, and has a US Navy destroyer, the USS Hopper named after her.

Grace's intelligence and charm shines through in this interview on David Letterman in 1986.  In a field where women are still underrepresented, it's tremendous that there are women like Grace Harper in computer science whom we cal all revere.
