Tools Training

GNAT Pro Tools

Through lectures and hands-on workshops, this 5-day course shows how to use AdaCore tools for improving overall code quality as well as for testing and debugging. It presents tools such as GNATcheck (style checks / coding standard compliance), GNATmetric (metric measurements), CodePeer (static analysis / vulnerability detection), GCov or GNATcoverage (structural code coverage analysis) and GNATtest (unit testing). It will also show how to make use of the GNAT compiler options and pragmas in order to detect certain kinds of errors early in the development process, and how to take advantage of stack usage data that can be extracted at compile-time.

Tools Training

GNAT Pro with GPS

This course shows advanced usage of GPS, and how to improve productivity by using its most advanced features. It’s composed of three independent days which can either be taken as a part of a GPS course, or separated and combined with other topics. See Course Details »

SPARK Training

Software Engineering with SPARK 2014

A five-day course for programmers, managers, and software assessment/regulation personnel, which presents the principles of high assurance software development and verification using SPARK 2014. The course explains the rationale of SPARK 2014, describes the language and the principles of static code analysis, and shows how to use the SPARK language and the SPARK Pro Toolset both in new projects and in the context of existing (legacy)systems.
