Computers, as we know them, have not been around long, considering they are now part of our daily lives.  As the world continued to develop computers and programming in the mid-to-late 20th century, various figures contributed to the effort.   Among those figures was a U.S. Navy officer named Grace Hopper.  Throughout her long Navy and civilian career, Rear Admiral made many contributions to a field that has become one of the most influential in modern memory.   Join us as we examine Grace Hopper's contributions and her visualization of the nanosecond coding language.  We will also explore how computers relate to the U.S. Navy and everyday life.  Please type in comments during the program in the Facebook comments section. 

This pre-recorded Facebook Premier program will be broadcast on the NMUSN Facebook page on the date and time indicated above.  If anyone has any problems accessing the NMUSN Facebook page, please send an email to  david.barker@navy.mil
