Грейс Хоппер — американская учёная и коммодор флота США. Будучи первооткрывательницей в своей области, она была одной из первых, кто писал программы для гарвардского компьютера Марк I. Она разработала первый компилятор для компьютерного языка программирования, развила концепцию машинно-независимых языков программирования, что привело к созданию COBOL, одного из первых высокоуровневых языков программирования. Ей приписывается популяризация термина debugging для устранения сбоев в работе компьютера. Из-за многочисленных достижений и высокого чина во флоте её иногда называют «Удивительная Грейс», «Amazing Grace» . В её честь назван эсминец ВМФ США USS Hopper и суперкомпьютер Cray XE6 «Hopper» Исследовательского вычислительного центра министерства энергетики . Wikipedia

„Первопроходцы перевозили тяжести на быках. И если бык не мог сдвинуть бревно, они не пытались вырастить быка побольше. Мы должны стремиться не к повышению мощности отдельных компьютеров, а к повышению численности компьютерных систем.“

Имеется в виду польза параллельных вычислений. Предпочтительнее использовать несколько обычных ПК, чем 1 дорогой суперкомпьютер. Цитата использована в качестве эпиграфа к 1-й главе книги "Hadoop. Подробное руководство" (Т. Уайт, 2012).

„Humans are allergic to change. They love to say, "We've always done it this way." I try to fight that. That's why I have a clock on my wall that runs counter-clockwise.“

—  Grace Hopper

Unsourced variant: The most dangerous phrase in the language is, "We've always done it this way."
The Wit and Wisdom of Grace Hopper (1987)

„If they put you down somewhere with nothing to do, go to sleep — you don't know when you'll get any more.“

—  Grace Hopper

Grace Hopper on Late Night with David Letterman (2 October 1986) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1-vcErOPofQ
Контексте: There's something you learn in your first boot-camp, or training camp: If they put you down somewhere with nothing to do, go to sleep — you don't know when you'll get any more.

„We must include in any language with which we hope to describe complex data-processing situations the capability for describing data.“

—  Grace Hopper

As quoted in Management and the Computer of the Future (1962) by Sloan School of Management, p. 273
Контексте: We must include in any language with which we hope to describe complex data-processing situations the capability for describing data. We must also include a mechanism for determining the priorities to be applied to the data. These priorities are not fixed and are indicated in many cases by the data.
Thus we must have a language and a structure that will take care of the data descriptions and priorities, as well as the operations we wish to perform. If we think seriously about these problems, we find that we cannot work with procedures alone, since they are sequential. We need to define the problem instead of the procedures. The Language Structures Group of the Codasyl Committee has been studying the structure of languages that can be used to describe data-processing problems. The Group started out by trying to design a language for stating procedures, but soon discovered that what was really required was a description of the data and a statement of the relationships between the data sets. The Group has since begun writing an algebra of processes, the background for a theory of data processing.
Clearly, we must break away from the sequential and not limit the computers. We must state definitions and provide for priorities and descriptions of data. We must state relationships, not procedures.

„Please cut off a nanosecond and send it over to me.“

—  Grace Hopper

On demonstrating a billionth of a second of electricity travel with a piece of wire, in an interview on 60 Minutes (24 August 1986)
Контексте: In total desperation, I called over to the engineering building, and I said, "Please cut off a nanosecond and send it over to me."

„A human must turn information into intelligence or knowledge. We've tended to forget that no computer will ever ask a new question.“

—  Grace Hopper

The Wit and Wisdom of Grace Hopper (1987)
Контексте: We're flooding people with information. We need to feed it through a processor. A human must turn information into intelligence or knowledge. We've tended to forget that no computer will ever ask a new question.

„You manage things, you lead people. We went overboard on management and forgot about leadership.“

—  Grace Hopper

The Wit and Wisdom of Grace Hopper (1987)
Контексте: You manage things, you lead people. We went overboard on management and forgot about leadership. It might help if we ran the MBAs out of Washington.

„A ship in port is safe; but that is not what ships are built for. Sail out to sea and do new things.“

—  Grace Hopper

This saying appears to be due to John Augustus Shedd; it was quoted in "Grace Hopper : The Youthful Teacher of Us All" by Henry S. Tropp in Abacus Vol. 2, Issue 1 (Fall 1984) ISSN 0724-6722 . She did repeat this saying on multiple occasions, but she called it "a motto that has stuck with me" and did not claim coinage.
