GeneralAda Lovelace PinmemberJimmyRopes18-Feb-14 17:03 
In my disorganized ramblings through the annals of computer science, a decidedly random journey, I came across some literature about Ada Lovelace1 and her journey into her self proclaimed "poetical science".
 
I got to wondering if anyone still uses ADA these days and, if so, what are it's advantages, if any, over other more modern programming languages?
 

 

1 - Ada Lovelace is the worlds first computer programmer, writing the first algorithm to be processed by a machine.
