IRILL is particularly interesting for Silex Labs and Haxe. Indeed it has a lot in common with Silex Labs, including support for open source communities. And it participates in the life of the community OCaml, which is the language with which the Haxe compiler is coded, and to whom we owe some very popular features of the Haxe language. IRILL is also a sponsors of the project Ocsigen, which is also based on OCaml and which is in the same area as Haxe. And IRILL helps organizing the OCaml rally each year…
The mission of IRILL, the Center for Research and Innovation on Free Software, is to bring together in one place leading researchers and scientists, expert FOSS developers, and FOSS industry players to tackle the three fundamental challenges that FOSS poses today:
- scientific: study, explore and solve the new problems raised by the development, maintenance and wildly varying evolution process of the large mass of code that FOSS gives access to
- educational: adapt curricula for users, system administrators, and developers to prepare them for a computing infrastructure in which FOSS plays a prime role.
- ecomomic: contribute to create a sustainable ecosystem for the FOSS innovations
This conference is a first step towards collaboration between IRILL and Silex Labs, and an entry into the world of OCaml, which is evolving and which involves talented OCaml developers, who could play a role in the development and sustainability of Haxe.
It’s free and open to the public, we would be delighted to have the fans 😉

After a brief presentation of the ecosystem and the framework is developed Haxe, we will see what makes Haxe an original solution to the problem which is that of ordinary multi-platform publishing. I will present also some libraries must-Haxe, particularly NME and Cocktail that hide the inconsistencies of target languages behind a standard API.
