"GPS was developed by programmers for programmers," said Franco Gasperoni, Managing Director of ACT Europe, "it is a new kind of IDE that offers the experience of designing software in a uniquely comfortable environment. It is a fresh approach to IDE's that you can't describe with words, you have to try it".

To that effect, we are proud to offer an easy to use, easy to learn IDE that allows programmers to quickly develop, manage, and maintain even the largest of projects", said Robert Dewar, President of Ada Core Technologies.
