I wish I could say that ITG uses Ada to develop products, but I can't.
We use C++ and Perl. I chose ITG because I wanted out of aerospace, and
this seemed like a good choice. ITG is not interested in Ada (I've
tried). However, if anyone knows of non-aerospace Ada jobs in Southern
Cal, I'm open to suggestions.

Yeah, I know, this stuff belongs on comp.lang.ada, but I couldn't
resist.
