Subject: Make with Ada programming competition opens – offers €8,000 in prizes


I’m emailing with details of a competition that I think would be of interest to your members.

Software company AdaCore has just launched the Make with Ada programming competition, which offers over €8,000 in total prizes.

Make with Ada is looking for individuals and small teams to develop open, inventive, reliable and collaborative embedded software projects, using the Ada or SPARK programming languages and ARM Cortex M or R processors.

Open to all enthusiasts, entrants can create any type of project they want, with potential examples including robots, drones or Internet of Things devices. There is plenty of information on the competition, and how to develop in the standardised Ada language, including tutorials, on the Make with Ada website, along with examples of previous projects. Entrants can also register on the website.

The winning project (which can be created by a team or an individual) will win 5000 euros, with second and third prizes of 2000 and 1000 euros respectively. The competition has just opened and runs until 30 September 2016. There is no entry fee.

I’d be grateful if you could share the news of this competition with your members. I’ve attached a flyer that can be printed/distributed and you can download banners from

if you’d like more information don’t hesitate to visit the website or drop me a line.

Thanks in advance
