OCaml's been around in various forms for 30 years. 20 years of continuous development on the current code base. Regular releases through all that time. In the form of ML for 40 years. What makes you think it's going to die out in the next 5 years?



Can OCaml use more than one cpu yet? (genuinely curious, not sarcastic)

Last time I looked into it, the answer was no. I vaguely recall it having to do with stdlib not being thread safe, concurrency issues with the GC, and some other stuff...



OCaml still has a global lock, but there are plenty of ways to do multiprocess concurrency (like Python).




Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
