OCaml Labs compiler hacking


Seventeenth OCaml compiler hacking evening at Pembroke

18 Apr 2017

Our next OCaml Compiler Hacking event will be on Tuesday 16th May in The Old Library at Pembroke College, Cambridge.

If you're planning to come along, it'd be helpful if you could indicate interest via Doodle and sign up to the mailing list to receive updates.

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 16​th ​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.
