001, “Overview”– a module that presents an overall
picture of the language and that allows students to write small
002, “Basic Concepts”– the first in a formal series of
Ada classes, introducing basic Ada programming concepts and allowing
students to write programs based on these features.
NEW YORK & PARIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
AdaCore today launched AdaCore
University - a free, web-based resource center for anyone interested
in learning about, or how to program in, the Ada programming language.
The new website offers pre-recorded courses and other learning materials
on Ada, with access to AdaCore’s GNAT Ada toolset for writing and
running example programs. It also utilizes the latest in website design
and learning tool features. Students at all levels of experience and
expertise can begin writing programs quickly and can proceed at their
AdaCore University courses educate through examples, allowing students
to see, understand and experiment with most features of the Ada
programming language. Drawing on the experience and teaching credentials
of Ada experts, such as AdaCore founders and New York University
Emeritus Professors Robert Dewar and Edmond Schonberg, the courses
explain Ada’s technical concepts with insight into the rationale and
usage of particular features.
The initial curriculum includes two courses:
Both of these modules, and all future courses, provide sources and
installation instructions for all learning materials and tools. The
courses cover the latest version of the Ada language (Ada 2012), and
students have access to AdaCore’s GNAT Ada development environment and
programming tools. The AdaCore University website also hosts a number of
technical papers on Ada, offering insight into particular aspects of the
language’s design and usage.
AdaCore University is an ongoing, live project that will be expanded to
include more advanced courses on Ada, and SPARK 2014 – an Ada-based
programming language designed for high-integrity software (i.e., where
reliability is essential and where safety and/or security certification
may be required).

Founded in 1994, AdaCore is the leading provider of commercial software
solutions for Ada, a state-of-the-art programming language designed for
large, long-lived applications where safety, security, and reliability
are critical. AdaCore's flagship product is the open source GNAT Pro
development environment, which comes with expert on-line support and is
available on more platforms than any other Ada technology. AdaCore has
an extensive world-wide customer base; see http://www.adacore.com/home/company/customers/ for
Ada and GNAT Pro see a growing usage in high-integrity and
safety-certified applications, including space-based systems, commercial
aircraft avionics, military systems, air traffic management/control,
railroad systems, and medical devices, and in security-sensitive
domains, such as financial services. The SPARK Pro toolset, available
from AdaCore, is especially useful in such contexts.
AdaCore has North American headquarters in New York and European
headquarters in Paris. www.adacore.com
