The first programmable electronic digital computer was called the ENIAC (Electronic Numerical Integrator And Computer). The contract to make it was signed on June 5, 1943, and the only one manufactured was on February 14, 1946. It was designed by John Mauchly and J. Presper Eckert of the University of Pennsylvania. For the very earliest computer, see the related link to the Antikythera Mechanism.

  2. in 1943, the first programmable electronic digital computer, the Colossus was built by Tommy Flowers for Bletchley Park. up to VE day 11 of these computers were built.
  3. in 1946, ENIAC was finished, as told above.
