Ada for the Embedded C Developer

Quentin Ochem, Robert Tice, Gustavo A. Hoffmann, and Patrick Rogers

This course introduces you to the Ada language by comparing it to C. It assumes that you have good knowledge of the C language. It also assumes that the choice of learning Ada is guided by considerations linked to reliability, safety or security. In that sense, it teaches you Ada paradigms that should be applied in replacement of those usually applied in C.

This course also introduces you to the SPARK subset of the Ada programming language, which removes a few features of the language with undefined behavior, so that the code is fit for sound static analysis techniques.

This course was written by Quentin Ochem, Robert Tice, Gustavo A. Hoffmann, and Patrick Rogers and reviewed by Patrick Rogers, Filip Gajowniczek, and Tucker Taft.
