Meet Grace Hopper: the woman who revolutionised computer coding, coined the term ‘computer bug’ and taught computers to ‘speak English. An ace inventor and groundbreaker, Grace Hopper transformed the world of computer science. This book tells the inspirational story of this amazing woman with a passion for maths, an insatiable curiosity and the firm belief that “it’s easier to ask for forgiveness than…to get permission.”

Happy Birthday, Grace Hopper!
