Those wishing to learn Ada programming now have a valuable, free resource to turn to. Computer-Books.us announced that it now lists Ada books at http://www.computer-books.us/ada95.php
Ada is a structured, computer programming language designed by a team lead by Jean Ichbiah of CII Honeywell Bull. In the 1970s, the US Department of Defense (DoD) was concerned by the number of different programming languages being used for its projects, many of which were obsolete or hardware-dependent. In 1975 the DoD looked at reducing this number by finding or creating a programming language generally suitable for the department's requirements; the result was Ada.
Peter Kitson who manages the Computer-Books project said "We are absolutely delighted to be able to offer this service to the programming community."
He went on to add "There are many great Ada reference books available online and we wanted to present them in one convenient collection."
A non-profit project with a mission to compile a listing of quality computer related reference books that are available for free online browsing and downloading. Most titles in the collection have previously been published in print.
