We empower OCaml and its community
The OCaml Software Foundation is a (non-profit) foundation whose mission is to promote, protect, and advance the OCaml programming language and its ecosystem, and to support and facilitate the growth of a diverse and international community of OCaml users.
We collect donations from our sponsors, companies, entities or people interested in growing the OCaml programming language, and redistribute these resources to grow, support and strengthen the OCaml community.
Some of our recent actions
We fund internships to advance the OCaml ecosystem and also grow new OCaml contributors. In 2019 and 2020 we funded Outreachy internships to improve the OCaml compiler and language tools, a research internship on OCaml type inference, and development internships on teaching platforms.
We support the development of the Learn-OCaml exercise platform and try to facilitate its adoption by teachers. We provided financial support to some early-adopters of the Learn-OCaml platform (McGill university). We are funding teachers to grow a shared corpus of high-quality exercises. We also provided financial support to run new editions of the OCaml MOOC, open to everyone.
