While most people think of the 1930s as the time when computers made their début, there was one designed much earlier than that…in the 1830s. This great TedED video provides a fascinating look at Charles Babbage’s mechanical, steam-powered analytical engine.

I have heard of both Babbage and Ada, they were indeed the inventors of the computer, nothing can change that.
