Women who Hit the Stamp in Computer Science

Women academicians played a very important role in the development of computer science until the 80s.
programming and software engineering is not a "male profession" until the 80s. on the contrary, female academics played a significant role in the development of computer science. Unfortunately, this pairing led women to move away from computer science and the environment remained in men in the 80s, when home computers were almost entirely marketed for boys.

women have achieved their achievements in computer science as rights and freedoms, in periods when they were expected to marry and look after children, or during periods when work was considered a ları male job old. many have won the right to vote at some point in their lives before gaining success. Each of their successes is unusual.

we'll probably see women's return to computer science at a faster pace. especially in the area of ​​information security and software that I follow more and more women are in the field.

The builder of bug and debugging. In 1950, Hopper developed the first compiler in history. developed the first high-level programming languages cobol. 70 years after he was doing this, we still say that if we still debug the bugs that were written while writing the program, we still write and compile in high-level languages, and in some places cobol is still used, it leaves us a very long-lasting legacy.
