The Ada Project (TAP) is a clearinghouse for information and resources related
to women in computing. TAP serves primarily as a collection of links to other

projects, disucssion groups and organizations, fellowships and grants, notable
women in Computer Science, and other electronically accessible sites. The goal
of TAP is to provide a central location through which these resources can be
TAP was named after Ada Lovelace and was
started in 1994 at Yale University as an online resource for women in computing.
Women@SCS, an organization at Carnegie
Mellon University, maintains TAP on a volunteer basis. We have added a
new section dedicated to the past and current famous women in computer science
and technology including Ada Lovelace! You
can check it out in the famous women section.
We hope that you, the TAP user community, will help us keep TAP as up-to-date
as possible. Please let us know if you wish to add
a link or find any broken links. We also welcome your comments and feedback
regarding use of the site.
Welcome to TAP, and enjoy your visit!
