List of Ada Articles in Trade Magazines

I have collected the following list of Ada articles that have appeared over the last five years in various trade magazines. I included software, engineering, and computing magazines that people casually read (note I did not include academic journals).

As far as I can tell, certain publications have historically lacked Ada articles (all networking magazines and many PC-oriented magazines), while others (Embedded Systems Programming, etc) tend to accept articles regularly.

I am not sure how big this list will grow, but if anyone wants to add to it, please send me the reference --e-mail to: (I could not find references to trade papers more recent than 1991 in the AdaIC archives.)
