The Reason Association is a legally established non-profit organization. We are focused on the practical research, development and promotion of the ReasonML and OCaml programming languages.
Reason is heavily used for web development tasks. Therefore we set our goals to put high emphasis on a good user / developer experience while also trying to maintain a strong connection to the scientific field.
We exist to bring the extensive range of powerful OCaml tools to the web development domain, hence make them more accessible for a broader audience.
We want Reason to be future proof. We are convinced that our work will make the Reason development processes more transparent and will also give companies the confidence to commit to a well established language platform.
The board of the Reason Association is responsible for the strategic vision of the organization.
The Reason Association is a non-profit organization with strategical and operational tasks. The board is evaluating current trends and important Open Source tools and libraries in the Reason and OCaml community and defines projects to support the development, either with code contributions, or if possible, with necessary funding.
A project is required to have a properly defined scope, a delegated contact person and must be reviewed after a runtime of maximum 6 months. The process of each project is properly tracked in our curated Projects section, which is regularly updated during the process.
If you are a developer or an organization with an interesting project idea, please get in touch.
We need to obey Austrian law for non-profit status, so we want to highlight some facts on what we can, and cannot do:
All our relevant work needs to be openly accessible to the public.
We are not allowed to offer products or services, such as consulting or contract work.
We may pay for services which help us reach our goals, e.g. paying OSS developers for their work.
Also all our legal documents, such as our statutes, are required to be maintained in German. Our English documents are translated by professional services and are compliant to the EN ISO 17100 standard.
