Ada is the programming language of choice for high integrity software systems and is used extensively in industries such as transportation and aerospace. Special features of the book include: Object-oriented programming, concurrency, and embedded and real-time systems are emphasized. Ada for Software Engineers explains the language concepts and the terminology of the standards document, the Ada Reference Manual (ARM). Extracts from the ARM are used throughtout and there are extensive cross references to the ARM. A comprehensive glossary and technical quizzes assist the reader in developing the ability to use the ARM as a practical reference. Comparisons with familiar languages like C and Java are given to facilitate the transition to Ada. The features of Ada 2005 are used routinely, but they are carefully identified, so that programmers using Ada 95 will also find the textbook useful. The companion website contains the full source code of nearly 100 case studies and 100 technical quizzes.

This is a short course that introduces novice programmers to software engineering concepts and illustrates them using the Ada programming language. The course, which takes about two weeks to teach, is aimed at advanced placement computer science high school classes. It stresses problems that arise in programming in the large, particularly those caused by change, communication, and complexity. It shows how software engineers employ abstraction, information hiding, and software reuse to deal with these problems. The solutions shown are expressed in Ada. The students see and appreciate how Ada can help them solve real problems. The course material contains viewgraphs instructors can use as the basis of lectures. Each viewgraph has accompanying notes that show how to present the viewgraph and suggest topics for discussion. The course is divided into four units; following each unit are summaries, suggested group activities, and homework assignments. A comprehensive examination and an evaluation form are also included.

This volume combines the proceedings of the 1987 SEI Conference on Software Engineering Education, held in Monroeville, Pennsylvania on April 30 and May 1, 1987, with the set of papers that formed the basis for that conference. The conference was sponsored by the Software Engineering Institute (SEI) of Carnegie-Mellon University. SEI is a federally-funded research and development center established by the United States Department of Defense to improve the state of software technology. The Education Division of SEI is charged with improving the state of software engineering education. This is the third volume on software engineering education to be pub lished by Springer-Verlag. The first (Software Engineering Education: Needs and Objectives, edited by Tony Wasserman and Peter Freeman) was published in 1976. That volume documented a workshop in which educa tors and industrialists explored needs and objectives in software engineering education. The second volume (Software Engineering Education: The Educational Needs of the Software Community, edited by Norm Gibbs and Richard Fairley) was published in 1986. The 1986 volume contained the proceedings of a limited attendance workshop held at SEI and sponsored by SEI and Wang Institute. In contrast to the 1986 Workshop, which was limited in attendance to 35 participants, the 1987 Conference attracted approximately 180 participants.

The Ada programming language was created by the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) nearly two decades ago to provide a general-purpose programming language for defense and commercial use, but has evolved into a niche solution for safety-critical systems, primarily in defense applications. Ada and Beyond presents an approach for the DOD to move beyond the debate over its policy that requires the use of Ada for all new software development. It describes the importance of the software engineering process and recommends to DOD mechanisms for more effective review of software development and improved collection of data on software project outcomes. The volume also analyzes the technical, empirical, and business cases for using Ada and other programming languages, makes recommendations regarding the appropriate conditions under which DOD should continue to require the use of Ada, and details activities that require funding by DOD in order for Ada to remain a viable programming language.

The8thInternationalConferenceonReliableSoftwareTechnologies,Ada-Europe 2003,tookplaceinToulouse,France,June18–20,2003.ItwassponsoredbyAda- Europe, the European federation of national Ada societies, and Ada-France, in cooperation with ACM SIGAda. It was organized by members of Adalog, CS, UPS/IRIT and ONERA. Toulouse was certainly a very appropriate place for this conference. As the heart of the European aeronautic and space industry, it is a place where so- ware development leaves no place for failure. In the end, reliability is a matter of human skills. But these skills build upon methods, tools, components and c- trolled practices. By exposing the latest advances in these areas, the conference contributed to ful?lling the needs of a very demanding industry. As in past years, the conference comprised a three-day technical program, during which the papers contained in these proceedings were presented, along with vendor presentations. The technical program was bracketed by two tutorial days, when attendees had the opportunity to catch up on a variety of topics related to the ?eld, at both introductory and advanced levels. On Friday, a workshopon“QualityofServiceinComponent-BasedSoftwareEngineering”was held. Further, the conference was accompanied by an exhibition where vendors presented their reliability-related products.

Ada’s Legacy illustrates the depth and diversity of writers, thinkers, and makers who have been inspired by Ada Lovelace, the English mathematician and writer. The volume, which commemorates the bicentennial of Ada’s birth in December 1815, celebrates Lovelace’s many achievements as well as the impact of her life and work, which reverberated widely since the late nineteenth century. In the 21st century we have seen a resurgence in Lovelace scholarship, thanks to the growth of interdisciplinary thinking and the expanding influence of women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Ada’s Legacy is a unique contribution to this scholarship, thanks to its combination of papers on Ada’s collaboration with Charles Babbage, Ada’s position in the Victorian and Steampunk literary genres, Ada’s representation in and inspiration of contemporary art and comics, and Ada’s continued relevance in discussions around gender and technology in the digital age. With the 200th anniversary of Ada Lovelace’s birth on December 10, 2015, we believe that the timing is perfect to publish this collection of papers. Because of its broad focus on subjects that reach far beyond the life and work of Ada herself, Ada’s Legacy will appeal to readers who are curious about Ada’s enduring importance in computing and the wider world.
