The Ada Project is named after Ada Byron King, Countess of Lovelace and pioneer in computer science.
The Ada Project (TAP) is a clearinghouse for information and resources related to women in computing. TAP serves primarily as a collection of links to other online resources, rather than as an archive. TAP includes information on conferences, projects, disucssion groups and organizations, fellowships and grants, notable women in Computer Science, and other electronically accessible sites. The goal of TAP is to provide a central location through which these resources can be "tapped".The site includes brief biographies of Pioneering Women in Technology, including computer scientists, mathematicians and engineers.
