Advent of Ada/SPARK 2023 Results

by Fabien Chouteau

At the end of November we called the Ada and SPARK programmers community to take on a challenge for a good cause. For each person completing one of the Advent of Code exercises using the Ada programming language, AdaCore would donate $10 to the Ada Developers Academy, up to a total of $5,000. And for those willing to go an extra mile, AdaCore would donate $20 if the solution is implemented in SPARK.

We are now in January and it is time for the results!

We counted 16 participants in the forum thread, 145 exercises completed using Ada, and 2 using SPARK. This adds up to $1490 for the Ada Developers Academy!

Three special mentions are in order, Gautier de Montmollin, J.C. Moyer, and John Perry who completed all 25 exercises!

Thank you all for your contribution,
