OCaml has quite a few places where you can go to communicate with the community and learn about the language:
Where to find OCamlers
- OCaml Discourse Web Forum is a friendly, online forum for OCaml discussion. If you prefer to have long-form conversation rather than just chatting, this is the place to do it.
- OCaml Discord Chat is a chat server for everything related to OCaml. Pop by and ask a question or just say hi. The Discord server also provides a bridge to IRC via the #general channel.
- OCaml IRC Chat:
OCaml’s more established chat room.
You can access this via Discord as well (see above).
- weechat IRC script link: Script to allow IRC users to see discord user messages as if they, rather than the bot, wrote the message.
- The Official OCaml Mailing List: this precedes the Discourse forum but is currently not well used. Some people aren’t on Discourse but are subscribed to the mailing list.
- OCaml Subreddit: contains both news and discussions about OCaml, but tends to have minimal traffic.
- The OCaml github page: where development and some discussion on the internals of the OCaml language takes place.
- OCaml RFCs: Repo for fully-implemented suggestions and features for OCaml’s evolution.
- OCaml Planet: an aggregator for many blogs about OCaml and related concepts.
- The Official OCaml Website: a central hub for online OCaml information.
- OPAM: OPAM is OCaml’s package manager. You can keep track of the latest or most popular packages here.
ReasonML is a new syntax on top of OCaml, and as such many discussions pertaining to Reason apply to OCaml as well:
