Submission + - David Caminer, creator of the first business compu (reghardware.com)

linatux writes: Chris Bidmead at reghardware.com has written a fascinating article on "LEO" — the first business computer.

But it took Caminer's team only two years to tame the beast, and in November 1951 it was proudly running "The Bakery Valuations Job" to track and cost the labour and material of cakes, biscuits and bread moving through Lyons various profit centres."
