Jamie Ayre with Adacore talks to Rich Nass with Embedded Computing Design about the ``Make with Ada'' challenge that occurred earlier this year. The contest aimed to help the embedded software community improve the quality of their code by encouraging the use of the Ada and SPARK programming languages. The competition ran from May 15 to September 15, 2017. Jamie also discusses a new safety and security product. For more details on Adacore, visit www.adacore.com.
