Exams are coming up, or may soon be over for some of us. While working hard, it is important to take a break as well. Why not take a break to have fun and discover the amazing things technology has to offer through some techtivities? 😉

Let’s first learn something new. For October’s #TechFact, did you know that the first computer programmer was Ada Lovelace? In the 1840s, she pioneered her work on the Analytical Engine, which is often regarded as the world’s first computer – setting an example for women in tech ever since. 🤩 (Source)
