Ada - In Strong Typing We Trust - 2D



It is based on previous similar Ada coin-like pictures from the 2001-2002 Ada-Belgium programming contest.
A previous version of the Silver "Ada coin" picture was used from 2004 on by ACM SIGAda
The latest update adds "2022" on a Gold coin, referring to the upcoming ISO standard for the Ada programming language.

The Ada 2012 and 2022 versions were recreated from scratch by Steven Craeynest in a more common format (PNG) and using the highest resolution version available of the original "Lady Ada" image.

Ada Mascot - Time-tested, safe and secure


This is a derived work from the the winner of the Ada Mascot contest in Nov 2014 on Reddit.
Visible on Wikipedia , Wikibooks , Wikiversity

Leah Goodreau was inspired by Ada Lovelace's adolescent fascination with flight and Charles Babbage's nickname for her, "Lady Fairy."
The coloration of the mascot references the Asian fairy-bluebird, while the silhouette is a hummingbird because of their famed speed and sleekness.

Modern, Rust inspired


Olivier inspiration is that « Ada Lovelace exists in all modern girls/pal/guy/human. That's why I give her the face of a modern "CS student". Also note that her skin color is not necessarily white.»

Inspired by the Rust logo gear
