The computer was manufactured under the company name of Sperry Rand Corporation for the United States Census Bureau. The UNIVAC will remain in operation through 1963.Univac I was not only the first American commercial computer, but also the first computer designed to computer large numbers. The first contracts for these computers were government agencies, like the Census Bureau and US Air Force. It took almost a year to finally ship the first Univac computer.

asmnnt Frances Elizabeth "Betty" Holberton (March 7, 1917 – December 8, 2001) was one of the six original programmers of ENIAC, the first general-purpose electronic digital computer. During World War II while the men were fighting, the Army needed the women to compute ballistics trajectories. Holberton was hired by the Moore School of Engineering to work as a "computor", and was soon chosen to be one of the six women to program the ENIAC. Classified as "subprofessionals", Holberton, along with Kay McNulty, Marlyn Wescoff, Ruth Lichterman, Betty Jean Jennings, and Fran Bilas, programmed the ENIAC to perform calculations for ballistics trajectories electronically for the Ballistic Research Laboratory (BRL), US Army. Their work on ENIAC earned each of them a place in the Women in Technology International Hall of Fame. In the beginning, because the ENIAC was classified, the women were only allowed to work with blueprints and wiring diagrams in order to program it. The ENIAC was unveiled on February 15, 1946, at the University of Pennsylvania. It had cost almost $500,000.[5] During her time working on ENIAC she had many productive ideas that came to her overnight leading other programmers to jokingly state that she "solved more problems in her sleep than other people did awake,". #BettyHolberton #FrancesElizabethHolberton #Holberton #birthday #programmers #ENIAC #Computerprogrammer #schoolofengineer #usarmy #KathleenAntonelli #MarlynMeltzer #RuthTeitelbaum #JeanBartik #FrancesSpence #cobol #fortran #GraceHopper #BINAC #UNIVAC #NationalBureauofStandards #WomeninTechnologyInternationalHallofFame #AugustaAdaLovelaceAward #HolbertonSchool #IEEEComputerPioneerAward #programmerslife #programming #programminglife #schoolofengineering #computerscience #informationtechnology 2mon
