This web site is devoted to ENIAC — “Electronic Numerical Integrator And Computer”. ENIAC was the first general-purpose electronic computer. It was made at the University of Pennsylvania’s Moore School of Electrical Engineering during World War II under the code name "Project PX". Physics professor John W. Mauchly and electrical engineer J. Presper Eckert led the team. Both were civilian employees whose computer work was funded by the United States Army Ballistics Research Laboratory. This is a collection of the best online information about the ENIAC and the people that created it.

Pioneer Programmer: Jean Jennings Bartik

It’s out! Jean Bartik’s autobiography has finally been published, decease and it is a great read – especially if you like the ENIAC and want to understand the social background of that time.  The sort-of-now-famous six female first programmers weren’t given any manuals (contrary to to Goldstine’s book)  but had real programs and real bugs and real deadlines.  Jean Bartik tells her story with gusto and humor.  The first sketch for the cover of the book was Jean driving a covered wagon into the western frontier and that’s not too far from the truth.

You can read a little of the book on Amazon.

We were sorry to say goodby to the last of the six programmers when Jean died in 2011.   Her NYT obituary is here: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/04/08/business/08bartik.html  She had finished the book but editing and fact checking were still to be done.  Go grab the paperback, it's worth it.  Or get an electronic Kindle version; Jean would approve.

There's a little trove of pictures of Jean throughout her life  here.  SW Missouri State University  published the book.
