When your software really has to work, choose Ada!
The purpose of Ada-Belgium is to be a forum for persons and organizations interested in the Ada programming language, in its applications and in Ada related technologies such as software engineering methods, environments and tools.
Ada-Belgium is a non-profit organization ran by volunteers, and a member of Ada-Europe, the European federation of national Ada organizations.
Ada is a modern programming language designed for large, long-lived applications where reliability, efficiency and safety are critical. It's the technology to consider for mission-critical software.
If you don't know what Ada is,
If you think you know what Ada is, check these myths and misconceptions.
If you wonder why you should (re-)consider Ada, check these ideas and arguments.
Ada's success is still one of the world's best-kept secrets.
We're doing what we can to help change that.
