Why so hard to come up with a simple embedded Ada system?
I'll just come out and say it - for a language that was designed for as much for embedded applications as for anything, it seems to be maddeningly difficult to actually get Ada on a modest embedded platform. By modest I mean low-end 32 bits, no MMU. ARM7 or Cortex Mx would be my first choice. I can be up and run... 19 Jul 2010 19:03

I have been checkin... 12 Jul 2010 11:47
How many hardware threads?
As we all know there is currently a lot of "buzz" about parallel programming and about the "crisis in software development" that is associated with it. People using languages with weak support for concurrency are now wondering how they will use multi-core systems effectively and reliably. Of course Ada already has ... 12 Jul 2010 21:49
