Introductory Ada Programming Book: A Book for Beginner Programmers and Beginners to Ada Availability:
In Introductory Ada Programming Book, you'll learn Ada by being gently guided through the various parts of the language. Learning how to program in a new language is challenging, so the goal is to slowly ease you into the different topics. It is understood that you not always have ample free time, so the text is easy to digest and concepts are spoon fed to the reader. Starting with the simplest of topics, detailed explanations detail the how and why of Ada. You are strongly encouraged to experiment and break things (without which the learning process is linear and quite dull.) At the end of this book, you will have an excellent understanding of the general topics that make up the Ada programming language and can tackle far more challenging topics. The source code in this book is freely available for anyone to read.
This is the table of contents that provide an overview of this book:
- Basic Types
