OCaml: a serious contender

Objective Caml performs quite well at the ICFP programming contest. In the seven editions of this contest, programs written in Objective Caml obtained the first place three times, the second place twice, the third place once, and were awarded the “lightning division” prize and the judge's prize once.

The ICFP Contest judges humorously proclaimed that Objective Caml is “the programming tool of choice for discriminating hackers” and “a fine programming tool for many applications.”
