Tezos and OCamlPro
A reflection on the new year… Today, Tezos is a global network and an open source project with developers spanning over five continents. In the inception of this project, the French company OCamlPro which, to this day, stills develops numerous projects around Tezos, played a particularly important role. Indeed, they were the first home of the research engineers who laid down the cornerstone of the code base, in tight collaboration with Arthur Breitman and the architect of the project, and DLS. We take some time today to remember those early days and celebrate the flourishing of this once small project.

OCamlPro is a R&D lab founded in 2011, with the mission to help industrial users benefit from experts with a state-of-the-art knowledge of programming languages theory and practice.
- We provide audit, support, custom developer tools and training for both the most modern languages, such as Rust, WASM and OCaml, and for legacy languages, such as COBOL or even home-made domain-specific languages;
- We design, create and implement software with great added-value for our clients. High complexity is not a problem for our PhD-level experts. For example, we developed the prototype of the Tezos proof-of-stake blockchain.
- We have a long history of creating open-source projects, such as the Opam package manager, the LearnOCaml web platform, and contributing to other ones, such as the Flambda optimizing compiler, or the GnuCOBOL compiler.
- We are also experts of Formal Methods, developing tools such as our SMT Solver Alt-Ergo (check our Alt-Ergo Users' Club) and using them to prove safety or security properties of programs.
