Introduction to Incr_dom: Writing Dynamic Web Apps in OCaml
At Jane Street, we use OCaml in almost everything we do, and that includes web development. Incr_dom is an open-source library written at Jane Street that provides a framework for writing interactive web apps in OCaml. Many of our internal web apps are built on top of this framework.
In this talk, I’ll introduce you to the Incr_dom framework, and illustrate how it works though a live demo where I’ll walk you through how to write a simple Incr_dom web app.
**This talk does not require any prior knowledge of OCaml.**

At Jane Street, she worked on one of the first internal web apps to use Incr_dom, and has since been involved in the maintenance of Incr_dom.
