Nice to see some work done on this topic. Our GC is good, but I am sure we can do better. 

Thank you +Damien Doligez for taking care of that (now and in the last 15 years)
We've been doing a bunch of work recently on improving the responsiveness of OCaml's garbage collector. I thought it would be worth discussing these developments publicly to see if there was any useful feedback to be had on the ideas that we're investigating. The basic problem is a well-known ...

It's been a fantastic second year at OCaml Labs, but lots of fun stuff left to do in 2015 as well.  The overview of our 2014 is now available.

This is interesting and surprisingly easy (found on OCaml Weekly News) -- ctypes.  I thought the rationale behind using 'returning' was particularly well explained.

Ex:

# let puts = foreign "puts" (string @-> returning int);;
val puts : string -> int = <fun>

# puts "Hello, world!";;
Hello, world!

International Conference on Functional Programming 2015 call for sponsorships and how you can help!  For the first time, we are running an Ally Skills workshop by the Ada Initiative as well, so there's an extra reason to support the conference.
The call for papers for this year's International Conference on Functional Programming is about to close in two weeks, and over a hundred cutting edge research papers will be submitted on the theory, application and experiences behind functional programming and type theory.

Je suis client +OVH depuis presque 10 ans et je suis content de les voir cosignataires de cette lettre. La France a besoin de plus d'entreprise comme OVH.

Extrait:
En tout 30 à 40 % du chiffre d’affaire de nos hébergeurs est réalisé par [le] biais [de nos clients étrangers]. Ces clients viennent parce qu’il n’y a pas de Patriot Act en France, que la protection des données des entreprises et des personnes est considérée comme importante.
 ·  Translate
30% de croissance annuelle : les hébergeurs français se développent, créent des milliers d'emplois directs et indirects, et investissent des centaines de millions d’euros tous les ans en France. Et pourtant, par le biais du projet de loi renseignement en procédure accélérée, le gouvernement français les contraindra à l'exil. Pourquoi ?

Hash Code is a programming contest organized by Google France. You can pick any programming language -- including OCaml.

FYI: some organizers are OCamlers (+Vincent Simonet, +Mathias Kende).
 
Inscrivez vous à la nouvelle édition de Hash Code

Vous êtes étudiant ou ingénieur et souhaitez participer à un concours de programmation chez Google, alors n’hésitez pas à vous inscrire à la deuxième édition de Hash Code. Vous allez devoir résoudre des challenges que les ingénieurs de Google rencontrent au quotidien. Ce sera aussi l’opportunité pour vous d’échanger avec les ingénieurs du centre de R&D de Google France.

Le concours est ouvert aux étudiants (Licence, Master, Doctorat et écoles d’ingénieurs), ainsi qu’aux ingénieurs déjà en poste et basés en France, Belgique, Luxembourg et Suisse.

OCaml featured in an InfoQ poll.

Talking about low latency for starting a program, OCaml is considered as an option -- even against bigger players like C++. The poll even mentions OpenMirage (which means they did their homework ;-)

Unfortunately, data only available if you vote.
