Happy New Year! Our first compiler hacking event of 2017 will be at Pembroke College.
Where: N7 Pembroke College
N7 is through the second arch and on the left.
When: 630pm, Tuesday 7th February
Who: anyone interested in improving OCaml. Knowledge of OCaml programming will obviously be helpful, but prior experience of working on OCaml internals isn't necessary.
What: fixing bugs, implementing new features, learning about OCaml internals
Refreshments: either the Pembroke buttery between 545-645pm (cash only) or there will be a finger buffet in N7 itself.
We're defining "compiler" pretty broadly, to include anything that's part of the standard distribution, which means at least the standard library, runtime, tools (ocamldep, ocamllex, ocamlyacc, etc.), the debugger, the documentation, and the compiler itself. We'll have suggestions for mini-projects for various levels of experience, but feel free to come along and work on whatever you fancy.
