ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

This material was developed as part of an assignment given in the fall of 1996 to students in CIS 330 (Programming Languages) at OBU. The original assignment follows:

Provide a brief biographical sketch of women who were involved in the development of programming. Your text is a good starting point but will not be sufficient to receive full credit for this assignment. Naturally, this should be word-processed and look good. Provide reference info (text, URLs, etc.).

Cindy Meyer Hanchey, Ph.D., compiled the original materials, and a web page was created by Angela Pybas in the fall of 1996. Two years later, the assignment was revised and revisited. The web page was updated by Ashley Miller. In fall of 2002, students added to the materials and updated the links. Additional materials were included by Megan Hershberger. Ryan King updated the page in 2002. Additions and corrections were made by Philip Rowland and Micah Jones in the fall of 2006 and by David Johnson, Dan Reynolds, and Nate Weigl in fall of 2008. In updating the materials in January of 2009, I decided to omit wikipedia references.
