If you are wondering why the name Ada? Well, first and foremost, the founder is not called Ada, the network was actually founded by two women called Anjali Ramachandran and Merici Vinton. Secondly, Ada’s List is named after Ada Lovelace also known as Countess of Lovelace. Born 1815, she was an English mathematician and writer, chiefly known for her work on Charles Babbage’s proposed mechanical general-purpose computer. She is famous for the Analytical Engine and writing first programming language in 1842.

As an email-based community, Ada List members can:
