Reliability, safety, and security are essential properties of many computer systems today, and to meet these requirements software developers need to know the best tools and techniques. The Ada language plays a major role in helping to meet these requirements, and to encourage developers to learn and use the Ada language, AdaCore has created AdaCore University; a web-based resource center with a growing body of training material. The AdaCore University site offers pre-recorded courses and other educational content, with access to AdaCore’s GNAT Ada toolset for writing and running programs, all at no cost. The self- paced and example-driven courses are appropriate for students, professionals and coding enthusiasts at all levels of experience and expertise. The courses cover Ada 2012, the most recent version of the language, and explain Ada’s technical concepts with insight into the rationale and usage of particular features. Each module includes quizzes and programming exercises.
