Konrad Zusekonrad_zuse.jpg

  • Developed the Z1, Z3, and Z4 the first programmable (modern) computer, making him the father of the computer.
  • Wrote the first algorithmic programming language called 'Plankalkül' in 1946.
  • One of the first people to create a commercial computer and computer company.

Originally named the V1, the Z1, which began development in 1936 by Germany'sKonrad Zuse in his parents' living room, is considered the first electro-mechanical binary programmable computer. The Z1 had 64-word memory (each word contained 22 bits) and a clock speed of 1 Hz. Both programming and output were generated using punch tape with a specific reader. Below is a picture taken in 1937 of the Z1 computer.
