Address Programming Language

Ada is an advanced, modern programming language designed for large, long-lived applications. It was originally intended for use in defense systems but has since been applied in commercial settings as well. Named after Ada Lovelace, a 19th-century mathematician credited with writing the first algorithm meant to be processed by a machine — effectively making her the world's first programmer — Ada includes built-in features that directly support safe and secure software development practices without sacrificing performance. This helps to prevent many common defects and vulnerabilities at compile time rather than runtime, which would be more costly to resolve later in the software development lifecycle. Such features include strong typing, run-time checking, modularity mechanisms (packages), generics and exception handling.
