Il computer è donna. Eroine geniali e visionarie che hanno fatto la storia dell’informatica

We usually think that informatics is “man stuff”… Not at all! If we can use a phone or a computer is only thanks to some brilliant women, erased by history, whose stories will surely fascinate you.

If you have never heard the name of Grace Hopper, if you think that Hedy Lamarr was only a really beautiful actress, and if you know Ada Byron only for being George Byron’s daughter, you have to read this book! These and other strong and gifted women have made the historyof informatics. Unfortunately, their names have been erased from the history of science, since the credit for their work was often given to the men withwhom they worked. Now, at last, Carla Petrocelli tells their charming stories that will amaze you, and will change forever your way of thinking at technology.
