ABSTRACT
This sketch of Grace Murray Hopper, the first famous female computer scientist, focuses on her early programming days, creation of the first compiler, leadership in creating the Cobol language, and latter-day speaking career. It also highlights the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing conference, which, since 1994, has brought together an increasing number of women (and now men) to address the disappointing gender imbalance in IT professions.
