Description

This course will introduce you to the basics of the Ada language. It will cover concepts that were present in the Ada 83 release but also include features from the current Ada 2012 version. In this course, you'll start with downloading and installing a free and highly capable toolchain for Ada. Then you'll learn the basic concepts and syntax of the language including types/subtypes, expressions, procedures, functions, and packages. By the end of the course, you'll be creating useful applications and kicking yourself for ignoring this powerful and constantly evolving language for so long.
