Meetup for people interested in the Ada programming language.

It is organized by Ada in Sweden:

http://www.ada-sweden.org/

If you have the following requirements on a programming language then Ada might be for you!

1. Maximum performance. The code should be compiled directly into machine code. No interpretation of the compiled code should be needed before execution by the CPU. No garbage collection that needs to do any kind of analysis before deallocations.

2. Readability. The designers of Ada has preferred usage of keywords over "strange" symbols and syntax. This makes the code "look like English". In addition, the standard library of Ada avoids acronyms. Something that is for example written "recvfrom" in C++ would be written "Receive_From" in Ada.

3. Safety and the principle of least surprise. The code does what it says. A consequence is that Macros are forbidden.

4. Features for code reuse and mechanisms for avoiding uninitialized variables. In particular the dependency graph of packages is a tree. Cyclic dependencies are for example allowed in C#, Java and C++, but not allowed in Google Go. For more information please check out the "static initialization order fiasco".

If you are interested in Ada software development you are welcome to join.
