O, I usally see more noise whenever Ada is mentioned in the past, but that's just my experience.
I haven't looked at other parts of reddit.com other than the Ada subedit, so I trust your impression.
minor gripe about the meeting I came from: In the meeting, I basically showed a list of bugs found in code
that has been fielded already. They are mainly the usual found in C code (buffer overflows, bad casts, etc).
Anyhow, a couple managers were present
after the meeting one of them jokingly brings up how I've proposed Ada in the past , and the joking expanded with other managers and the usual remark "Isn't that gone?" "O yeah, that was ancient"
I'm just keeping the conversation lighthearted and laughed along, but it dawned on me
that they laugh but money is probably going to need to be spent fixiing many of the bugs I discovered.
It's just sad.
Easily avoidable bugs if it were not for the use of C, and they laugh at something that can avoid that and avoid extra costs.
anyhow, just had to get that off my chest.
