Konrad Zuse (June 22, 1910 "“ December 18, 1995) was a German civil engineer and computer pioneer of the twentieth century. His most notable accomplishment was his 1941 invention of the world's first functional program-controlled Turing-complete computer, called the Z3. In 1964, he was honored with the Werner-von-Siemens-Ring for this project. Zuse also contributed the design of the first high-level programming language, PlankalkÃ¼l. In 1948, he published his design, but the...
