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.

Use stepper motors in your next Arduino MakerPro project
When using an Arduino board, DC motors and hobby servos are relatively easy to control, but stepper motors require a bit more electronic fiddling to get working correctly.
Choose the right motor type for your build
When working with MCUs and the like, blinking lights and OLED outputs are fun, but to create something that actually moves, your first choice will normally be a DC motor.

Sensor options for MCUs
While Arduino boards and the like can respond to serial inputs from a computer, to really take advantage of MCUs and their associated development boards, you need an array of sensors.
Extra hardware needed to get started with the Raspberry Pi Zero
First off, the Pi Zero doesn’t use a standard HDMI connector, or even RCA-style outputs, but needs a mini-HDMI cable.
Simple device-to-device communication with the NRF24L01+ module
While the NRF24L01+'s range is limited to 100 meters or less line-of-sight, it’s perfect for simple remote control and data transmission applications.
Benefits of publishing your work for MakerPros
By moving on to the next project or task without reflecting on and recording what we’ve done, we lose some important benefits that we could get from documenting our projects.
