- A strongly typed high-level computer programming language.
ADA is a computer programming language developed by the US Department of Defense (circa 1983). It is based loosely on Pascal, but uses concepts from other software development languages.
The letters which make the name ADA do not stand for anything. The language was named after Ada Lovelace who is often credited as having been the first computer programmer.
