Plz see msg below from Ed Colbert.  I can't tell if he is asking
about numbers of trained Ada 95 programmers industry-wide or just
TRW (I'll call our training director & get an answer for Ed,
which I think is close to 100 at TRW, altho only a small # are
actually using Ada 95 yet).

Anyone with any form of statistics industry-wide please reply to
just Ed & me with your data.  Or your educated guesses.  Does the
AJPO or AdaIC have some handle on this?  If we get credible numbers,
we'll post summary to all of you.

Thanks in advance for your help on this important opportunity!

Subject: Use of Ada on TRW's Commercial Embedded Satellites
Date: Tue, 15 Jul 1997 07:32:57 -0700

Hi Hal,

Apparently some of the TRW system engineers are concerned about the use of
Ada on commercial embedded satellites.  There will be a meeting next Monday
to discuss.  The issues are C++ vs. Ada 95, training, availability of Ada
95 vs. C++ programmers, and availability & quality of development
environment.  I think I can handle most of the issues, although I don't
know how available Ada 95 programmers are.  Do you have any info I can
relay?  (Also, if you have any other ideas to contribute,...).

Take Care,
