ADA is an object-oriented, strongly-typed programming language which the US Department of Defense uses for much of its contracted software development. It is equal in power to Java and is especially popular for programming embedded systems.

  • "Ada is taught and used all around the world (not just in the USA). Ada is used in a very wide range of applications: banking, medical devices, telecommunications, air traffic control, airplanes, railroad signalling, satellites, rockets, etc." [1]

It was named for Ada Lovelace, who documented the work of Charles Babbage, an early computing pioneer (see Analytic Engine).
