A interesting pin of woman Margaret Hamilton as lead engineer who wrote code to send a human to the The stack of books gives a hint: This was not CHANCE but - - Intelligence was needed for that just as much as the MILES of a information. A or Great & TINY
••Margaret Hamilton's Code Got Humans on the Moon + Invented Software Itself!•• Wired article 2015-10-13: in a Man's world, yes, it was/is a woman! ; ) 1960 MIT math undergrad • she did when software was not part of language, nor in NASA/Apollo budget + women were not engineers/programmers
(Foto: NASA) Margaret Hamilton era diretora da Divisão de Engenharia de Software do Laboratório de Instrumentação do Instituto de Tecnologia de Massachussets, o MIT. O nome de seu cargo só não é maior que a pilha de códigos que ela exibe orgulhosa na foto de 1968. É a versão escrita do software que permitiu que a Apolo 11 pousasse no nosso satélite natural.
Margaret Hamilton was the lead software engineer on the team that developed the Apollo flight computer software, and is credited with coining the term "software engineering." As the Apollo 11 Lunar Module tried to land, an error in the flight manual led to an unnecessary radar being left on, overloading the computer. Her robust design allowed it to detect and report overload situations, and to skip lower-priority tasks. The system handled it appropriately and the landing was not aborted.
