What does Frontline Support mean to you?
I believe Frontline Support is something very unique to AdaCore. I have yet to learn about another software company which profits from helping customers rather than selling software.
Frontline Support is AdaCore’s commitment to customers, it is a service for engineers by engineers. We provide expert advice on any topic ranging from language semantics to software development to tool usage, available at any time.
What drew you to Ada?
I was first introduced to Ada in 1999, during my undergraduate studies with Michael B. Feldman. Since then I had the opportunity to learn, experience and reevaluate various programming languages such as C and Java. In the end, I came back to Ada.
I think that Ada’s superior language features coupled with its readability and maintainability made a very strong impression on me, characteristics to which I am still drawn today.
What’s your favorite feature of GNAT Pro Technology?
A compiler can mean the difference between a frustrating and a pleasant programming experience, even influence one’s perception of a language. This is why I am very fond of the GNAT Pro compiler, in particular its capability to deliver clear and detailed error diagnostics.
