Oops! We forgot. Our 1st software Engineer was a Woman!

July 19, 2018

Margaret Hamilton joined the Apollo Project as NASA’s first computer programmer in 1965!!!

Not only was she the first person to use the term SOFTWARE ENGINEER, her computer programming skills saved the Apollo 11 space capsule from crashing during the 1969 landing on the moon.

She was presented with the PRESIDENTIAL MEDAL OF FREEDOM by President Obama in 2016.
