I am happy to announce an OCaml hacking session in the evening of June 6th in the other Cambridge (MA, US). The event will take place at MIT, between 17:00 and 23:30, in the room 3-133. Access instructions can be found at:
This event, organized by Clément Pit-Claudel, Thomas Bourgeat and myself, is open to all OCaml programmers, advanced or beginners. Attendees will be encouraged and assisted in making a contribution to an OCaml open source project, including in particular the OCaml compiler implementation itself – we will propose a list of tasks and project ideas, and try to help in providing technical advice, feedback and guidance for contribution.
Coming with a project in mind is also welcome, on the compiler codebase or any other OCaml codebase. Many blocks of the OCaml ecosystem would benefit from contributions, including documentation contributions and the https://ocaml.org website. If you were waiting for an opportunity to scratch an OCaml-y itch in a friendly place, there it is!
Event implementation details are still being arranged, but we are not planning on having food at the event itself. We may go out in groups around dinner time, but feel free to eat beforehand or bring your own food.
Please feel free, of course, to ask any question here.
