Gillian Jacobs directed a wonderful short film about Grace Hopper called The Queen of Code
. The film chronicles her life and involvement in computer science. Grace Hopper was a professor of mathematics and joined the war where she worked on the Harvard Mark I computer. Her team developed the first compiler. She later developed the first human readable computer programming language COBOL (COmmon Business-oriented Language). It is still in use today.
