Happy Birthday Ada Lovelace

Happy Birthday Ada Lovelace

Today, December 10 2014, is the 199th birthday of Augusta Ada Byron,
aka Lady Ada Lovelace, recognised by many as the first programmer.

The programming language Ada was named in her honor.

I'd like to remind everyone that a promotional image combining the
historical figure of Ada Lovelace and the programming language Ada
is available at [1].

Useful to know is that an "Ada Mascot Competion" [2] is ongoing.
It would be particularly fitting if some of the proposals would
be based on a modernized Ada Lovelace image.  Not many programming
languages have the name of the first female programmer... ;-)

Finally, remember that deadlines for submissions to several Ada
events are upcoming: the Ada Developers Room [3] at FOSDEM 2015 in
Brussels, and the Ada-Europe 2015 conference [4] in Madrid, Spain.
Share your experience at an Ada event in 2015, the 200th anniversary
year of Ada Lovelace!

Happy birthday, Lady Ada!

Press Release - Ada 2012 Published in LNCS and as Free eBook

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Ada 2012 Language Standard Published in Springer's LNCS and as
Free eBook Further Widen the Availability of Latest Language Revision

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

BRUSSELS, BELGIUM, May 12, 2014.  Ada-Europe today announced
the publication in extra formats of the 2012 version of the Ada
programming language standard, after its formal approval by ISO/IEC
JTC 1 in December 2012.

Since its standardization, the Ada 2012 standard has been available
in HTML and Adobe Acrobat format (PDF), from the download sites [1]
and [2].  More recently, the latest Ada language definition became
also available as volume 8339 of Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer
Science series [3], as a companion to the Ada 2012 Rationale, published
by Springer as LNCS 8338.

Moreover, with a view to exploring new media platforms to further
widen the availability of this important material, Ada-Europe has
now produced a prototype eBook of the Ada 2012 Reference Manual,
which can be downloaded from [1].  This eBook should be regarded
as a draft concept, proposed for the scrutiny of the Ada community
at large, for feedback on its perceived usefulness and suggestions
for improvements.  Returns on this subject should be addressed to
Ada-Europe at board <at> ada-europe.org.
