OCaml Labs organises and hosts a variety of different events over the year - including academic, community and wider outreach events.

Regular Hack Events[edit]

Compiler Hacking[edit]

Originally started as simply a space and time for Jeremy Yallop and Leo White to sit and focus on all aspects of the compiler, this event has grown to include a much larger group and often involves talks/demonstrations by attendees and visitors to OCaml Labs. Join the mailing list and keep up to date with upcoming compiler events and projects.

MirageOS Hackathon[edit]

We hope this will become a bi-annual event!

The first MirageOS hackathon was held in Marrakech between 11-16 March 2016, welcoming 30 Mirage enthusiasts from all over the world including complete newcomers to the Mirage community. It was a huge success - from both a development and social viewpoint. See trip reports from MirageOS community members who attended.

The next MirageOS hackathon is scheduled to be held in Cambridge on 14th and 15th July at Darwin College. More details and signup information will be available soon.
