My name is Prisca Chidimma and I wish to invite you all to a short presentation on my Outreachy internship experience working with the OCaml Community!
My internship with OCaml is coming to an end after three months. I’m thrilled to share my experience with you and discuss the project I worked on, which was to implement a non-blocking streaming codec for Topojson.
During my internship, I had the privilege of working with an exceptional mentor, @patricoferris , who made my time at OCaml even more enjoyable. In this presentation, I’ll be sharing insights on what it was like to work on the project, as well as my experiences from the internship
The date is March 6th, 2023 at 14h00 CET. This presentation is open to anyone and everyone.
@patricoferris will post a link to the video meeting closer to the event. A recording will also be available for those not able to join.
I really enjoyed watching this talk @Prisca, and some quick suggestions:
Your slides look great, with lots of nice OCaml/TopoJSON code fragments; might you consider making them available online somewhere? Making yourself a homepage, or using something like Speakerdeck.com are both good options.
I noticed you published a release of the library to opam – you should add yourself to the authors list in dune-project, so that you are credited in the documentation page for TopoJSON.
(As an aside, the website says that “documentation status is unknown” for that package, and I’m not sure what that means – might @jonludlam or @tmattio know what that means?)
Really nice work, again – I look forward to using TopoJSON in the future.
The generation of the documentation for the package failed, we’re looking into it, thanks for the report!
Note that the logs for OCaml.org documentation pipeline are available at https://docs.ci.ocaml.org/package, it’s not extremely useful in this case (the error is a Docker timeout), but it can be helpful to package authors if they need to debug why their documentation doesn’t show up on OCaml.org.
