At Verodin we love the diversity of our team. On this day, October 10th, 2017, we celebrate Ada Lovelace Day, which is a perfectly good day to celebrate some of the awesome women at Verodin and thank them for their contributions.
Ada Lovelace (1815-1852) is considered to be one of the first computer programmers. She worked closely with Charles Babbage to help develop the Analytical Engine which is a predecessor to today’s computers.
Verodin strongly supports and encourages women in cybersecurity. This usually starts with getting young women interested in STEM. Because of this, many of the folks on the Verodin team, including myself, volunteer in our communities to increase interest and awareness about computer science and cybersecurity among young people.
Even my daughters, pictured above, have been getting involved with the #ILOOKLIKEANENGINEER campaign since 2015. Over the last few years, they have worked with Scratch from MIT, Python, Pygame, 7-segment, GPIO, locking picking (thank you DefCon), Raspberry PI, Robotics and yes, slime.
The women of Verodin, some pictured below, help make us the successful company we are today. I couldn’t be more grateful for their contributions. And, I’m equally excited about what this next generation of slime-creating, locking-picking, robot-hacking women will bring.
Happy Ada Lovelace Day from everyone at Verodin!
