February. Electronic computer

The electronic programmable computer «ENIAC» developed in the USA is considered the forerunner of the majority of modern computers. It was created during World War II to compute firing tables (specific instructions for artillery gunners). «ENIAC» was designed by the research officers of the University of Pennsylvania John Eckert, John Mauchly and their team. The project remained veiled in secrecy and only on February 14, 1946 the world's first computer «ENIAC» was presented to the public.
