It’s Spring, and time for the thirteenth Cambridge OCaml compiler-hacking evening! We’ll be back in Pembroke College again, in the centre of Cambridge.
Where : N7, Pembroke College , Cambridge CB2 1RF. Head through the entrance on Trumpington Street, and turn left straight after the Porters Lodge.
When : 7pm, Tuesday 31st 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.
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 , run time , tools ( ocamldep , ocamllex , ocamlyacc , etc.), camlp4 , ocamlbuild , the documentation , OPAM , 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.
Drinks and finger buffet will be provided.
