Our next OCaml Compiler Hacking event will be on Tuesday 16th May in The Old Library at Pembroke College, Cambridge.
Where: The Old Library, Pembroke College, Cambridge CB2 1RF
The Old Library is the first building on the left straight after the Porters Lodge.
When: 6:30pm, Tuesday 16th May
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.
Refreshments: either the Pembroke buttery between 5:45-6:45pm (cash only) or there will be a finger buffet in The Old Library itself.
What: fixing bugs, implementing new features, learning about OCaml internals
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.
