Ada 95 is the first standardized object-oriented language, making it an ideal language to teach programming with. Assuming no previous knowledge of programming techniques, this book gives many examples and exercises as well as the syntax and different language rules. Ada 95 From the Beginning presents the concepts of programming in a logical, easy-to-understand sequence and discusses all the important features of Ada 95, including the late changes that occurred to the standard, and a full chapter on object-oriented features of the language. This book has a dual purpose: to illustrate the fundamental principles of good programming and to provide an accessible introduction to Ada 95. Although intended for beginners, the book covers all of the language, making it a useful reference. The third edition brings the whole book fully in-line with the Ada 95 standard, now an international ISO standard.
Aiming to teach the fundamental principles of good programming and to provide an accessible introduction to ADA 95, this work assumes no previous programming knowledge. As well as presenting features of ADA 95, the book gives a detailed treatment of data structures, algorithms and top down design.
