Posted by Flatiron School  /  February 12, 2013

Today’s programmer of the day is Grace Hopper, computer scientist and United States Navy officer. She created the first compiler for a programming language, as well as one of the first modern programming languages COBOL. She served in WWII, and even popularized the term “debugging” when her team was removing an actual moth from a computer. Thanks “Amazing Grace!”
