AJPO Summer Intern

The Ada Joint Program Office welcomed a summer intern, Cadet Stephen Hamilton, a Computer Science major from the U.S. Military Academy. While at the AJPO, he significantly increased the AJPO's multimedia technical presentation capabilities.

He also increased the AJPO's understanding of the impact of supporting the teaching of Ada at West Point. Cadet Hamilton, like all cadets at West Point and the Air Force Academy, has received AJPO-supported Ada instruction. He is a strong supporter of Ada -- and his own performance shows its benefits.
