OCaml is an industrial strength programming language supporting functional, imperative and object-oriented styles - but don't worry if you're not familiar with these, as it's used as a teaching language by a lot of institutions (including Cornell and Princeton).
One of the best features of OCaml is the rich and powerful type system - this is useful to catch some mistakes early on saving developers a huge amount of frustration. Also, type inference relieves developers from having to specify types in the code - the compiler will work these out for you!
It's used by Facebook (for static code analysis with Infer) and Jane Street (for providing strong guarantees for their internal trading systems), and has influenced the F# functional programming language and ReasonML.Join the OCaml track

Exercism is fantastic in learning new languages but that is not the extent of it. If you are a "more experienced" programmer you may have encountered impostor syndrome: the idea you don't really know what you think you know. Exercism lets you solve problems and put them in the space of open feedback which is a tremendous learning opportunity to explore the depth of your own knowledge. Even if you have been programming in a language for awhile it is worth checking into Exercism to see where you stand with current implementation practices.
Once you join the OCaml language track, you will receive support and feedback from our team of mentors. Here are the bios of a few of the mentors of this track.
These are a few of the 42 exercises on the OCaml track. You can see all the exercises here.
