The women who programmed the first big ass computer ENIAC

Way back in the 1930s, computers were but an imagination in Hollywood and onscreen, all kindsa magic could be achieved, but in reality it was a chore. By the 1940s when war tech was on the rise, the bright heads go together and created ENIAC (Electronic Numerical Integrator And Computer) to figure out the intricacies of the atom blow-uptuator which was dropped on 2 Jap cities. Those heads happened to be females.

Programming at the time was not the 01 or mark-up human readable text in use today. No back then they literally used big ass cables to move current into various vacuum tubes to send signals, and it must have been laborious!

Thanks to those women and the many developers that followed, we now have Android! BigUps!
