Some Stuff Happened
Release the Kraken!
Sorry, I couldn't resist. Volume is still low across all exchanges but it's still early days. Also, our volume isn't faked ;-)

This is a great book for learning Ocaml. However! It is written by some of the main guys at Jane Street and the material relies heavily on the enormous Core library they created while there. Tezos does not use their core library, so be warned!

Tezos Stack Exchange
