OCaml at Jane Street Capital

[linkstandalone] A great talk by Yaron Minsky, of Jane Street Capital. He disusses why they picked the obscure OCaml as their language of choice and what separates the language from others. While the talk is around an hour long, if you only watch one part, I recommend starting at around 38 minutes in. Here he is talking about what makes the type system in OCaml so powerful, and compares it to its Java counterpart.
