OCaml Summer Project

Firstly, my apologies for the off-topic post, but many of the admirable
language design qualities of OCaml apply to ruby, and my hope is to get
news below out to potentially interested folk who may not be using OCaml
as a
day-to-day language.

That said…

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
to work on open-source projects in OCaml. At the end of the summer, we
fly all of the students who have completed their projects successfully
out for
a meeting in New York, where people will present their projects and get
chance to shmooze with other members of the OCaml community.

The project is being funded and run by Jane Street Capital. We make
use of OCaml here at Jane Street for real day to day work, and are
about the idea of encouraging and growing the functional programming
