The Return of Ada

Red Weasel Re:I used ada.... (336 comments)

The great part about being a programmer for the Air Force is how easy it was to get a waiver to use a more appropriate language. ADA was used in tech school and that was about it.

Now that I've left I STILL find ADA code running from the 70s. Upgrading it is a major bitch but If you are going to sling code for the government it would be good to know the basics.

The ability to import java and c into ADA are a real boon.

She posted a picture of the president, scrawled "Kill Bush" across the top and drew a dagger stabbing his outstretched hand. She later replaced her page on the social-networking site after learning in her eighth-grade history class that such threats are a federal offense. It was too late."
