Our summer compiler hacking event will be hosted by Euan and the Citrix Team on Thursday 7th July — come and explore the other side of Cambridge and the Science Park!
Where: Citrix Systems Research & Development Ltd.
Building 101, Cambridge
When: 7pm, Thursday 7th July
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: pizza and beer/other drinks will be available.
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.
