cofondatore di Anaconda.
Travis is a well-known leader in the Python Data community having authored or led the creation of industry cornerstones such as NumPy, SciPy, Numba, Conda, XND, NumFOCUS, and PyData. Prior to Quansight, he founded Anaconda and established the industry-standard platform for data science and machine learning.

Howard G. Cunningham is an American computer programmer
A pioneer in both design patterns and extreme programming, he started coding the WikiWikiWeb in 1994, and installed it on c2.com (the website of his software consultancy) on March 25, 1995, as an add-on to the Portland Pattern Repository. He co-authored (with Bo Leuf) a book about wikis, entitled The Wiki Way, and invented the Framework for Integrated Tests.
one of the co-designers of the Erlang programming language.
Originally a physicist, he switched to computer science when he ran out of money in the middle of his physics PhD and landed a job as a researcher working for Donald Michie�one of the founders of the field of artificial intelligence in Britain.
seminal work in optimizing compilers, and parallelization.
1989 first woman to become an IBM Fellow
2006 first woman to win the Turing Award.
Her A. M. Turing Award citation reads:
Fran Allen's work has had an enormous impact on compiler research and practice. Both alone and in joint work with John_Cocke (192-2002), she introduced many of the abstractions, algorithms, and implementations that laid the groundwork for automatic program optimization technology.
Their work established the feasibility and structure of modern machine- and language-independent optimizers.

specification.' -- Fred Brooks
Occa: coincide con la mia esperienza.
British computer scientist. He was one of the first to realise that the lambda calculus could be used to model a programming language, an insight that is essential to development of both functional programming and denotational semantics.
epigrams on programming
una delle pioniere dell'informatica, creatrice dei compilatori e di gran parte dei linguaggi di programmazione Cobol e Fortran, matematica laureatasi a Yale nel 1934, ricercatrice informatica e anche ufficiale della Marina degli Stati Uniti, promossa poi al grado di contrammiraglio.

1952: Grace Hopper is the first to use the word "compiler" for a new program type she wrote, in today words a linker-loader.
She popularized the idea of machine-independent programming languages, which led to the development of COBOL, an early high-level programming language still in use today.
"The most important thing I've accomplished, other than building the compiler," she said, "is training young people." They come to me, you know, and say, 'Do you think we can do this?' I say, 'Try it.' And I back 'em up. They need that. I keep track of them as they get older and I stir 'em up at intervals so they don't forget to take chances."
