Grace Hopper invented #cobol (among other things). COBOL lives on, keeping her memory and accomplishments alive for us. This is one of my favorite Google Doodles. It is perfect; every detail is correct, and beautiful. Thank you, .
How many women can you name who have both a supercomputer and a U.S Navy destroyer named after them? Grace Hopper—who we’re celebrating with a doodle today in the U.S.—is one. “Amazing Grace”’s contributions to computer science made her a pioneer in the field. She created the first compiler for a programming language and led the development of COBOL, the first modern programming language. Happy 107th birthday to Grace Hopper!
