Make with Ada embedded software project competition now open!


The 2nd annual Make with Ada competition, sponsored by AdaCore, invites software developers across the globe to build embedded applications using the Ada and/or SPARK programming languages. Ada and SPARK have a long and successful track record in building reliable, safe and secure software in critical domains, such as aerospace and transportation. This competition, following on the success of last year’s Make with Ada, aims to increase awareness of these benefits by encouraging the use of Ada and SPARK in new embedded systems projects. Entrants will have an opportunity to be rewarded for their efforts with the top prizes totalling more than $8000 in value. Also up for grabs is our student-only prize, an Assembled Printrbot 3D printer, which is open to all entrants who supply a valid student ID at registration!
