Proving Ground by Kathy Kleiman | Grand Central Publishing

ENIAC Programmers Project Founder Kathy Kleiman’s book "Proving Ground: The Untold Story of the Six Women Who Programmed the World’s First Modern Computer" just published!!

As shared on Grand Central Publishing's "Proving Ground" page:
After the end of World War II, the race for technological supremacy sped on. Top-secret research into ballistics and computing, begun during the war to aid those on the front lines, continued across the United States as engineers and programmers rushed to complete their confidential assignments. Among them were six pioneering women, tasked with figuring out how to program the world's first general-purpose, programmable, all-electronic computer–better known as the ENIAC.

Over the course of a decade, Kathy met with four of the original six ENIAC Programmers and recorded extensive interviews with the women about their work. PROVING GROUND restores these women to their rightful place as technological revolutionaries. As the tech world continues to struggle with gender imbalance and its far-reaching consequences, the story of the ENIAC Programmers' groundbreaking work is more urgently necessary than ever before, and PROVING GROUND is the celebration they deserve.
