Hi folks, we're organising another OCaml hacking session!
There will be an emphasis on OCaml compiler-hacking this time -- knowledge of OCaml programming will obviously be helpful, but prior experience of working on OCaml internals isn't necessary. If you want to do other OCaml stuff stuff instead, you're more than welcome (e.g work through the Real World OCaml book).
Note that, 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.), camlp4, ocamlbuild, 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.
We'll also be ordering pizza, (courtesy of OCaml Labs) so if you want to be counted for food please arrive by 6.30pm so we can put in the order (food should arrive by 7:30pm).
