Yale honors the “Queen of Software,” the late Grace Hopper, in renaming Calhoun College as Grace Hopper College. Hopper worked on the Harvard Mark I, and she was a programming language pioneer. She invented the first compiler, and she had a tremendous role in the development and standardization of the COmmon Business Oriented Language (COBOL). She also helped educate and inform generations of IT professionals and the general public¬†about how computers work (and should work).

Congratulations, Admiral!
