The Ada Programming Language

Ada is a modern programming language designed for large, long-lived applications – and embedded systems in particular – where reliability and efficiency are essential. It was originally developed in the early 1980s (this version is generally known as Ada 83) and then revised and enhanced in an upward compatible fashion in the mid 1990s. The resulting language, Ada 95, was the first internationally standardized (ISO) Object-Oriented Language. Under the auspices of ISO, the language is currently undergoing another (minor) revision, scheduled for completion in the form of an amendment to the standard in 2005.


The name “Ada” is not an acronym; it was chosen in honor of Augusta Ada Lovelace (1815-1852), a mathematician who is sometimes regarded as the world’s first programmer because of her work with Charles Babbage. She was also the daughter of the poet Lord Byron.

Aha, cuanto menos, interesante.. y yo que pensaba que ada no servía para nada.
