OCaml meeting 2010 debriefing

Members of the OCaml community met with the core developers at this year's OCaml Meeting 2010 on April 16th. Attendance was up to the maximum capacity of 80 people this year! The meeting was funded by the 11 corporate members of the CAML Consortium that now includes MLState as a new addition this year.

Slides and references for the lectures given by Xavier Leroy, Sylvain Le Gall, Stefano Zacchiroli, Julien Robert, Guillaume Von Tokarski, Sylvain Conchon, Jean-Christophe Filliâtre, Fabrice Le Fessant, Gerd Stolpmann, Dario Teixeira, Daniel Bünzli, David Rajchenbach-Teller, Philippe Wang, Jérémie Dimino, William Le Ferrand and Anil Madhavapeddy are available here.

Of particular interest was the keynote speech by Xavier Leroy (read the slides) about the forthcoming OCaml 3.12 release that introduces lots of exciting new features to the OCaml programming language such as first-class modules.
