17:00Ada’s Heritage

/* ¬†A round table on Ada Byron, who is considered at the same time ‘the first woman programmer’ and the first programmer tout court for her work on Babbage’s ‘engine’. A group of renowned scholars will discuss her approach to programming, the peculiar programmed machine and programming notations that were involved, as well as her legacy, in relation to both the historical background of formalization and mechanization of thought operations, and the main lines of development of computer programming.*/

17:00Da Vinci Code

/ * A people of navigators, poets, saints… but not programmers. Or not? Why when we talk about code we think of Americans, English, Swiss, Japanese, but not Italians? Yet there is a long history of Italian IT, which is not just hardware (the Electronic Calculator Pisana, the P101) but also algorithms, software and languages. * /

17:00Le Louvre du Code

/ * Source code is an important part of human culture, like literature or music. It is from this principle that the Software Heritage project was born in Paris and, more modestly, CodeFest launches the project of an Online Museum of Source Code. But all this is possible only if the code is open. * /

18:30The code on display

/* The source codes that make our world work are 8 thousand more than known languages; they therefore deserve a literary, artistic, linguistic and cultural reflection. In this workshop we present the first exhibition in the world on the source code, created by the Codexpo.org association together with the students of a class of the IIS Avogadro of Turin.

Ten students worked on a theme, preparing the panels and rooms that will be presented by them to other students, teachers, schools, but also to all the curious, experts or not. */

17:00Code me to the Moon (and back)

/* Don Eyles, a young scientist at MIT in Boston in the 60s, brings us the story of his experience in creating the source code of the Apollo Guidance Computer, the computer that allowed man to be brought to the Moon. He will tell us about the technical challenges they had to face to create a unique software in history and will reveal the background of how the quality of that code and the skill of those programmers literally saved several Apollo missions from unexpected events during the descent to the Moon.*/
