Note that SIGAda has had a presence at SIGCSE (Computer Science
Education) for the last couple of years anyway (probably longer, but
I am new to the Ada scene).  We gave away CDs with Aonix's free
educational version, along with GNAT/AdaGIDE.  I was at the booth
this past year (and expect to be this year too assuming SIGAda has
one) and have been willing to provide support to colleagues at other
universities who want to get started with Ada.
