Anil captivates the crowd with his talk on Mirage OS.

Last week, we had the privilege of hosting a very special guest speaker, Anil Madhavapeddy. You already know him as one of the authors behind “Real World OCaml: Functional programming for the masses”.

Anil showed us some neat developments from the Mirage OS project. Topics of interest included: an informal demonstration of OCaml Unikernels, a tutorial about operating system aspects, and a walkthrough of the TLS stack. Magnus Skjegstad gave us a demo of Jitsu which can spin up servers within milliseconds just-in-time as a request arrives. Anil also showed us the Bitcoin Piñata and invites programmers to tackle this challenge for a chance at free Bitcoins!

Below is a video of the entire talk for your enjoyment.

Those who came out to our event also had the chance to meet other OCaml enthusiasts, munch on some food, partake in some drinks, and bask in our uniquely painted officeWe’d like give a big thanks to Anil once again for making the long trip and being awesome as usual.

Thanks to everybody who came out and hope to see you at the next OCaml Meetup.
