+ - Jean Ichbiah, Chief Architect of Ada, Dies

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Jean Ichbiah, the chief architect of the Ada programming language, has died (http://www.adaic.org/news/ichbiah.html). Although Ada is not widely used today outside of DoD, the language introduced a generation of programmers to practical language constructs for what had until then been esoteric features such as overloading, exception handling, and multi-tasking."

All great ideas are controversial, or have been at one time.
