The OCaml Summer Project is aimed at encouraging growth in the OCaml community by funding students over the summer to work on open-source projects in OCaml. We do that by funding students and faculty to work together over the summer to create software that makes it easier for people who are using OCaml as an ends rather than a means.
The OSP is funded by Jane Street Capital. We make extensive use of OCaml at Jane Street, and it’s in our interest to see the community around OCaml thrive. Plus, we think it will be fun.
