We are pleased to announce the OCaml Summer Project. The project is aimed at encouraging growth in the OCaml community by funding students over the summer to work on open-source projects in OCaml. At the end of the summer, we will fly all of the students who have completed their projects succesfully out for a meeting in New York, where people will present their projects and get a chance to shmooze with other members of the OCaml community.
The project is being funded and run by Jane Street Capital. We make extensive use of OCaml here at Jane Street, and are excited about the idea of encouraging and growing the OCaml community. You can learn more about Jane Street and our use of OCaml here and here.
