Would anyone be interested in co-organizing or attending a Post-Ada workshop at Ada-Europe 2023 (Lisbon, 13-16 June)?
Any thoughts appreciated.
The "Post-Ada" concept has been debated here in CLA. It encompasses lessons learnt from the three decade long Ada experiment, ideas for betterment of the language, and creation of languages anew, like Parasail and King.
One way to approach the 'problem' would be to classify features of Ada as "keep, kill, or to be improved," for example:
- loop statements: keep
- function expressions: keep
- cursors: kill
- attributes vs. operations (tick vs. dot): kill
- inheritance: to be improved
- Unicode characters and strings: to be improved
A general issue could be to compare or harmonize this approach with the future (?) revision of Ada via Ada Issues. Personally I feel Ada (202X) is already too big to grow anymore. I suspect compiler maintainers would agree, and hope they couldparticipate (sponsor?)
