About this book

Introduction

Discover the Ada programming language by being gently guided through the various parts of the language and its latest available stable release. The goal in this book is to slowly ease you into the different topics. It is understood that you do not always have ample free time, so the text is easy to digest and concepts are spoon fed to the reader. 

Starting with the simplest of topics, detailed explanations demonstrate the how and why of Ada. You are strongly encouraged to experiment and break things (without which the learning process is linear and quite dull). At the end of Beginning Ada Programming, you will have an excellent understanding of the general topics that make up the Ada programming language and can tackle far more challenging topics. 

Each chapter builds on what was previously described. Furthermore, each code example is independent of others and will run all by itself. Instructions are provided where you can obtain an Ada compiler and how to debug your code.

You will:

  • Master basic types, control structures, procedures, and functions in Ada
  • Use Ada arrays, records, and access types
  • Implement OO programming using Ada
  • Handle the basics of I/O and interfacing with the operating system
  • Take advantage of string operators, data containers, multiprocessing with tasks, and more
  • Work with contracts and proofs, networks, and various Ada libraries

About the authors

Ever since beginning programming, Andrew Shvets was very interested in writing software that could be proven to be correct, without having to test every possible outcome or pray that extra bugs won't show up. Upon discovering SPARK/Ada, it became clear that his calling was answered.
