Wed, Apr 19 @ 7pm U.S. Central: Jonah Beckford on "What distributing OCaml on Windows gave me (and you)”

Please join the Houston Functional Programming User Group next Wednesday, April 19 at 7pm U.S. Central time (midnight UTC) when Jonah Beckford (@jbeckford) will discuss his work on developing Diskuv OCaml (DkML).

As everybody who’s been following DkML’s development is aware, Jonah’s work on bringing OCaml and it’s toolchain to Windows is incredibly impressive. In this talk, he’ll discuss why he decided upon this path, the challenges that he faced and how he overcame them, and his ongoing and future work, including the OCaml SDK that he will release this year.

If you’re in the Houston area, you can join us in person. Otherwise, please join us via Zoom. Compete details, including his abstract and Zoom connection info are available on our website at


Just a quick reminder that Jonah’s talk is tomorrow evening at 7pm central time. Hope to see you there, whether in person or on Zoom!

Is it by any chance possible to get a recording or a transcript? This kind of background information on why and how is usually very interesting.

Yes! We’ll be recording and posting the talk for those who can’t join us live/in-person.


I couldn’t attend the talk in person (inconvenient timezone), but I went over the slides and found them quite interesting. Thanks!


Thanks. Reminds me to share the slides: Distributing OCaml

I think the recording will be available in several days.


The video is now available on the HFPUG website at
