AdaCore at FOSDEM 2018

by Pierre-Marie de Rodat, Yannick Moy, Fabien Chouteau, Raphaël Amiard

Every year, free and open source enthusiasts gather at Brussels (Belgium) for two days of FLOSS-related conferences. FOSDEM organizers setup several “developer rooms”, which are venues that host talks on specific topics. This year, the event will happen on the 3rd and 4th of February (Saturday and Sunday) and there is a room dedicated to the Ada programming language.

Just like last year and the year before, several AdaCore engineers will be there. We have five talks scheduled:

In the Ada devroom:

In the Embedded, mobile and automotive devroom:

In the Source Code Analysis devroom:

Note also in the Embedded, mobile and automotive devroom that the talk from Alexander Senier about the work they are doing at Componolit, which uses SPARK and Genode to bring trust to the Android platform.

If you happen to be in the area, please come and say hi!
