Ada is a feature-rich language, but what > really makes Ada stand-out is that the features are nicely integrated > towards serving the goals of software engineering.

For coarse grained regular parallelism, load balancing > works with one single job queue. For finer grained and irregular > parallelism, work stealing balances the load with multiple job > queues. The programming concepts will be illustrated with examples > of algorithms in polyhedral geometry.

In the strict form, the assertions are checked > at compile-time, but in this presentation I will focus on the more > common, less strict, form, where at least some of the assertions > aren't checked until run-time. Ada gives us a lot of help, so we > can write the our assertions about the program properties once, and > then have the compiler insert actual run-time checks wherever there > is a possibility that the assertion is violated. > > This presentation will focus on how we can write these contracts in > Ada in a way that make them effective at ensuring that our source > text does what we intend it to and allow the compiler to generate > efficient checks of the assertions. The intended audience is anybody > with enough programming experience to know concepts like types, > encapsulation and packages.

The overhaul of the language and toolset > starting in 2010 increased greatly the language subset, dropping in > effect the need for separate grammar rules. Since then, SPARK has > progressively adopted most of the Ada features, to a point where the > last remaining non-SPARK significant Ada feature today is pointers. > We have started work on including safe pointers in SPARK, borrowing > the ideas of pointer ownership from Rust. So one can legitimately > wonder what difference remains between SPARK and Ada. > > In the first part of this talk, I will lay out the principles that > have guided us through the inclusion of language features in SPARK > since 2010. I will describe in particular the trade-offs that > we considered for support of important features like recursion, > types with non-static constraints, generics, object orientation, > concurrency. I will give a preview of the support envisioned > for pointers in SPARK. So that the distinction between Ada and > SPARK appears clearly: it's not about quantity, it's about safety > and security. > > In the second part of this talk, I will give a tour of FOSS projects > which are using SPARK today: Aida, Certyflie, Muen, PolyORB-HI, > Pulsar, StratoX, Tokeneer. For each one, I will describe at > which level of assurance SPARK is used, with how much efforts and > for which benefits. Then I will focus on the largest one, Muen, > an x86/64 separation kernel for high assurance. Finally, we will > look at the resources which are available to the community for FOSS > development in SPARK. > >16:00-16:50 - Writing REST APIs with OpenAPI and Swagger Ada > by Stephane Carrez - Bouygues Telecom > > The OpenAPI specification is an emerging specification to describe > RESTful web services. The Swagger suite is a collection of tools > to write such API descriptions and have the code generated in more > than 29 languages, including Ada. The presentation will describe > how to write a REST operation with OpenAPI, generate the Ada client > with Swagger Codegen and use the generated code to interact with > the server. We will also describe the generated Ada server code > and how to implement the server side and run a complete REST server. > >17:00-17:50 - Browser-as-GUI and Web Applications with Gnoga > by Jeffrey R. Carter - Atos Belgium > > Gnoga is an all-Ada library that uses the features of modern web > browsers as a portable GUI. The program may run on the same computer > as the browser, or on a server over the internet. Participants will > be introduced to using Gnoga to create such programs. > > A singleton version of the Random_Int demo program will be used to > demonstrate the use of Gnoga as the GUI for a program running on the > same computer as the browser. Random_Int is a very simple program > that generates (pseudo)random integers in a user-specified range. > The Chattanooga demo is a text-chat server program allowing people > to chat on line. It demonstrates the use of Gnoga to create web > applications. A secure version of Chattanooga can sometimes be > accessed at https://chat.gnoga.com/. (The certificate for this site > has expired, but can still be used to ensure encrypted communication > with the site.) > > After installing Gnoga, the demos are available in the demo > directory. More information about Gnoga may be found at gnoga.com, > especially the Tools page. > >18:00-18:20 - Easy Ada Tooling with Libadalang > by Raphaël Amiard and Pierre-Marie De Rodat - AdaCore > > A lot of developers consider that a language is only as good as the > tooling that accompanies it. Ada has been conceived as a language > pretty well amenable to tooling, yet the tooling offer besides > AdaCore's is not very extensive, at least when compared to other > languages like Java, despite the existence of the ASIS project > (Ada Semantic Interface Specification). > > One of Libadalang's aims is to help solve that by providing an > easy way to build new Ada-aware tools. Libadalang is a library > that allows the user to query information about Ada code, including: > + Syntactic information. Query the token stream, the syntax tree, > find syntax patterns, etc. > + Semantic information, such as which declaration an identifier > references, the type of expressions, all references to a > declaration, etc. > In addition, one of the aims is to allow the users to modify the > trees, and propagate the changes to the source. > > This talk will go over what Libadalang can already do today, how > it differs from ASIS, future plans for the library, and potential > exciting use cases. > >18:30-19:00 - Informal Discussions & Closing > > Informal discussion on ideas and proposals for future events. > >------------------------------- >More information on Ada DevRoom >------------------------------- > >Speakers bios, pointers to relevant information, links to the FOSDEM >site, etc., are available on the Ada-Belgium site at >
