Analytical Engine Order Code

The Analytical Engine order code is a programming language developed for Charles Babbage's early mechanical general-purpose computer, the Analytical Engine. Ada Lovelace, a mathematician and writer, wrote instructions — which became known as the first computer program — for the engine using this mathematical notation in 1843. The language could perform complex calculations by manipulating data through basic operations such as addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. The design of the programming language anticipated many concepts found in modern programming languages and helped lay the groundwork for future computing developments.
