What does “Frontline Support” mean to you?

Making sure that our problem solving expertise is immediately available to the right teams at the most critical times.

What drew you to Ada?

I have always associated Ada with sound software engineering practices for critical systems. It’s part of my passion for technologies focused on “doing it right” rather than “doing it fast” or “doing it cheap”.

What’s your favorite feature of GNAT Pro Technology

I have two:

  • The quality of error & warning messages
  • The GNAT Project facility

Both can improve productivity significantly. The first one in helping spot and correct issues early in the development cycle. The second one simplifies immensely the building of very complex systems.
