My God, could I but have seen her! Meanwhile, Annabella, who eventually was to become a baroness in her own right, and who was educated as both a mathematician and a poet, carried on with Ada’s upbringing and education. Annabella gave Ada her first instruction in mathematics, but it soon became clear that Ada was gifted in the subject and should receive more extensive tutoring. Ada received further training from Augustus DeMorgan, today famous for one of the basic theorems of Boolean algebra. By age eight, Ada had demonstrated an interest in mechanical devices and was building detailed model boats.

Each user is assigned a small slice of central processing time and then is put on hold while another user is serviced. Users generally aren’t even aware that there are other users. However, if too many people try to use the system at the same time, there can be a noticeable wait for a job to be completed. During the third generation, general-purpose application programs were being written. One example was the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) written in FORTRAN. SPSS had a special language, and users wrote instructions in that language as input to the program.
