Upgrade your skills in ADA programming language

AdaCore University is a free, web-based resource center for anyone interested in learning about, or how to program in, the Ada programming language. The new website offers pre-recorded courses and other learning materials on Ada, with access to AdaCore’s GNAT Ada toolset for writing and running example programs. It also utilizes the latest in website design and learning tool features. Students at all levels of experience and expertise can begin writing programs quickly and can proceed at their own pace.

AdaCore University courses educate through examples, allowing students to see, understand and experiment with most features of the Ada programming language. Drawing on the experience and teaching credentials of Ada experts, such as AdaCore founders and New York University Emeritus Professors Robert Dewar and Edmond Schonberg, the courses explain Ada’s technical concepts with insight into the rationale and usage of particular features.

The initial curriculum includes two courses:
Ada 001, Overview  – a module that presents an overall picture of the language and that allows students to write small programs; and
Ada 002, Basic Concepts – the first in a formal series of Ada classes, introducing basic Ada programming concepts and allowing students to write programs based on these features.

Both of these modules provide sources and installation instructions for all learning materials and tools. The courses cover the latest version of the Ada language (Ada 2012), and students have access to AdaCore’s GNAT Ada development environment and programming tools. The AdaCore University website also hosts a number of technical papers on Ada, offering insight into particular aspects of the language’s design and usage.

AdaCore University is an ongoing, live project that will be expanded to include more advanced courses on Ada, and SPARK 2014 – an Ada-based programming language designed for high-integrity software (i.e., where reliability is essential and where safety and/or security certification may be required).

How to Answer the Question "What Was Your Last Salary?"

From: How to Answer the Question "What Was Your Last Salary?"

No one is going to overvalue your services, but plenty of people will undervalue them. You have to value them first, and valuing yourself includes knowing when to say "I'm not comfortable with that request."

When you find your voice, your muscles grow. When you cave and cower and pretend that going along with any off-the-wall request or demand is the safe -- and therefore best -- option, your flame will shrink.

What you should do in Section-B (Avionics) which you don’t know.

I came across many situations where AeSI recent graduates have to walk together with the engineering graduates of Electronics background in order to get selected in an interview. I know it is damn difficult but not impossible. The fact remains the same that many Avionics engineers are working as an Embedded Software/Hardware engineer. Henceforth it is very much essential to learn the basics of various safety, security and mission critical standards, software and hardware. Unfortunately it is not a module of your Section-B syllabus however by spending few hours a week; one can certainly assure that he gets a job after completing his engineering degree.

Case study: I have recently joined a company where it is very much essential to know the basics of reliability, availability, maintainability and safety. I certainly wasn’t aware about these terminologies hence I have started taking advantage of social media. I have downloaded certain videos from YouTube on reliability basics and then I have downloaded couple of white papers about various methods of reliability predictions. No doubt, I wasn’t able to grab all things in one time but I certainly have learned new things. One should always remember that learning is an ongoing process.
I strongly recommend you to learn the basics of following modules before you start job hunting:
  1. Requirements Engineering: Learn the basics of requirements engineering.
  2. Design, Modeling and Simulation basics: You can learn many things at Mathworks website.
  3. You have C, C++ as a module in Microprocessor & Software Engineering subject of Section-A. However getting is the right answer can never make you a good programmer. It is very much essential that you should know the art of writing software code. MISRA – C, C++ can help you in doing the same. There are various technical FAQ and discussion threads available on official website of MISRA.
  4. Basics of Software Testing. Specially modules like static analysis, unit testing, code coverage.
  5. Basics of In Circuit Emulators and hardware debuggers.
  6. Reliability Prediction standards such as MIL-HDBK-217, NPRD 95, etc.  How organizations predict reliability and do impact analysis. Google modules like Fault Tree Analysis, Reliability Block Diagrams, Failure Mode Effect Analysis, etc.
  7. Hardware Debuggers
  8. Basics of compilers, IDE, RTOS, middleware, etc.
I know that being a student, it is very difficult to learn these many things but if you know at least the basics so I am sure that nobody can stop you in getting a good job.

Start asking “W” questions like
What is it?
Why is it used?
What are the methods?
Which companies are the best in each area?
How the knowledge of it can help me in my career?
& many more. 

Happy Learning! Please let us know if you require any additional support or information from our side. You may mail your queries as a comment below.

Getting Off the Ground

As an aspiring aeronautical engineer, you might already know this.

Getting off the ground is lot harder than flying.

Takeoff needs more power than cruise.

So why forget this while applying for a job, attending an interview or working on your academic projects.

These are the initial takeoff stage. Push the throttle to the max, apply yourself and give more than 100%.

How to prepare for M.S. interview…?

Firstly I would like to congratulate to everyone who had received interview call letter for M.S.(By research ) from IIT Madras…..As you had already received call letter for interview that means 50 % of selection is in your favour ,now to make 50 to 100 % you have to prepare nicely for the interview.

Unless in the case of M.Tech. Where admission solely depends upon your GATE rank rather than your interview , M.S. is the case where interview matters the most .So here it goes,

Tip 1: 1st make up your mind , In which specialization you want to work weather its structure, fluid, propulsion.

Tip 2 : Go through all the basics of the specialization .for example : if you wish to do MS from thermal than you must be well in 1st law,S.F.E.E.(steady flow energy equation) and its application,2nd law,3rd law,what is Cp,what is Cv,unit of Cp.This simple simple thing matters the most…..all they want to know is your basics is right or not ……for fluid : study continuity equation,momentum equation ,energy equation,bernoulli's equation ,fluid statics ,kinematics and dynamics .again MAKE YOUR BASICS CLEAR.

Tip 3 : If you don't know anything which they had asked ,tell them frankly that you don't know or you had studied but you are not getting it right now…..DON'T TRY TO MAKE THEM FOOL BY GIVING RANDOM ANSWER by this way you are just decreasing your chances of selection .

Tip 4 : Don't feel nervous for the interview .they all will make you friendly by asking some personal questions .

Tip 5 : In case you get stuck ,while you are giving answer they may help you by suggesting some things so keep your ears open and listen to each and every word they are saying attentively .you can also ask for their help ….

Hope it had helped you to get some insights of the interview.
If you had another question than feel free to ask me…

Experience matters ... !!

A question asked by student to Natrajan sir after GATE class..

A room is full of oxygen and if i increase the temp of the room ,will oxygen get burned….?

We all know how Natrajan sir clears doubt clear by giving simple simple example. He explains with such a example that we can not forget for a long time.

Bellow is his answer..

I'm a teacher and I can not teach my self . I need students to teach. Similarly oxygen is oxidizer, it can not be burnt by itself, it needs fuel to get burn.

Natarajan sir is a very well known faculty of Anna university.He is also visiting faculty of GIE. 

Share your experience in comment section ....

It's not just your talent........ Interview Tip

Getting a job isn't just a function of your talent and skills. It depends on one more important thing. It's your attitude. 

An interview actually isn't there to measure or ascertain your skills, experience or knowledge, but interview is a silent assessment of your attitude. In the sidelines, it measure what's your attitude? Are you positive or negative person? Is he/she adaptable? Etc.

And it's not just me, even the marketing genius Seth Godin says getting a new hire is actually a hunt for attitude and not talent.

…it's not really a search for talent. It's a search for attitudeThere are a few jobs where straight up skills are all we ask for. Perhaps in the first violinist in a string quartet. But in fact, even there, what actually separates winners from losers isn't talent, it's attitude.

Remember this whenever you are attending an interview, be it on telephone or in person.

It's a Showroom not a Warehouse!

Continuing with the last posts theme on the résumé; when writing or updating your résumé, always keep the title of this post in mind.

Yes. Your résumé should be the showroom of your talent, knowledge and experience. It's shouldn't be a warehouse where you have dumped all your projects, the subjects you have studied and everything in between.

The art of getting an interview call is an effective résumé. A résumé that invites a call for more interaction. So trim those extra, non relevant projects, those extra subject information or the trainings.

Just like a showroom, keep only the stuff that's in demand or in season. Keep the rest out.

Treat your résumé as a showroom than a warehouse and you increase your chances of getting a call for interview.

Don't escape it... A tip from Chennai Express

Pritesh wrote an email in OURAeSI and I think readers of this blog would benefit from reading it, so here is it unedited. 

Best way to escape from your problem is to face them.-Shah rukh khan in CHENNAI EXPRESS.

Yes ,its indeed true...

I had seen many students in AeSI who drop the subject once they failed in it and excuse they make is ,YAAR BAAR BAAR EK HI EK CHIJ PADHAKE PAK GAYA HU (i am bored by reading same and same things) but the fact is that they are escaping from that subject .

In my case whenever i had anysubject back i took it as a challenge and prepare in such a way that however hard the exam paper may come, i should not get less than 50 .at this time you have all ready basic concept of the subject .you just have to make it strong and on that u can easily can make the strong building so u can score in that subject .

In case suppose you had dropped that subject than u have to clear it at the end of ur section A or B .By the time you allready had forgotten your concepts so u need to study them again and grasp it.

My many of friends had written single paper for almost 4 to 8 times and they are now doing well and pursuing their masters from NITs/IITs.

You too can do it but don't escape from papers and face them.

NOTE: dar sabko lagata hai lekin dar ke aage jit hai...

Double your chances of getting a call for interview!!

I have seen this in more than enough resume that now it's a rule that one must follow if he/she wants to receive an interview call by sending a resume to a requirement.

Send your resume in doc format. When a resume is asked. Send it in the most used format for resume. The word doc format. Not in pdf or any other fancy stuff.

In PDF it might look good or it's un modifiable. But at the same time, it's going against the filing or the usual HR's program's or macros.

Most of the HR systems are geared and automated to filter and find the relevant resumes out of the thousands they receive. And if your résumé isn't in the standard format and file type, it will be skipped. They are not going to customise their systems because of one resume.

So until the time, PDF resumes are a norm, stick to the standard doc format, you will double your chances of getting a call for interview!!

How can I do my best in exams?

How can I do my best on the exam?

A lot of people have asked me this and the following passage is the best answer to that question.

"How can I ace my exam?" If you're a student, you are naturally concerned with how you perform on examinations. But, ironically, focusing on the impending test itself is not the best way to improve your performance on it.

Suppose in a few months you were going to be asked to do thirty push-ups. You could concentrate on what to eat the day before the push-up competition, and what shirt to wear that's not too tight or too loose, and how to give 110% at the time of the challenge. Or you could slowly, over time, increase the number of push-ups you can do each day between now and then so that it would be no effort to pump out thirty push-ups at test time.

"How can I do my best on the exam?" is not the best question to ask in school. Better questions include these:

"How can I become more engaged in the course material? "How can I become more engaged in the course material?"
"Could I give a lecture explaining the material?"

These questions lead to actions that you can take—becoming an active listener, joining a study group, or, even better, tutoring other

Improvement. It never comes unless you are trying. One trial is not improvement. It's a test.

Successive trials improves.

So when learning something new, be it a software, skill or subject. Aim to repeat. Do it multiple times.

That's were improvement is!!
