Ada answers. Building better software with Ada

[Ada-Europe logo]

The purpose of Ada-Belgium is to be a forum for persons and organizations interested in the Ada programming language, in its applications and in Ada related technologies such as software engineering methods, environments and tools.

Ada-Belgium is a non-profit organization ran by volunteers, and a member of Ada-Europe, the European federation of national Ada organizations.

Ada is a modern programming language designed for large, long-lived applications where reliability, efficiency and safety are critical. It's the technology to consider for mission-critical software.

If you don't know what Ada is, read this.
If you think you know what Ada is, check these myths and misconceptions.
If you wonder why you should (re-)consider Ada, check these ideas and arguments.

Ada's success is still one of the world's best-kept secrets.
We're doing what we can to help change that.
