About the Book
Note: This is in progress book, with a rough list of questions to be answered in the final version. The minimum price will be raised when the book is finished. Estimated arrival time is Fall 2020.
The topic of .NET memory management can be seen as quite simple because everything there is automatic and managed by the Garbage Collector. And that's true for most cases. Still, there are some more boundary cases when the convenient abstraction of the GC may become problematic. For example:
- do you know there can be a memory leak in the managed .NET application?
- do you know that your application may be in over 80% busy by doing the GC, not its original work?
- do you know why we should avoid finalizers?
- do you know what are the common cases of allocations?
This book provides a wide variety of questions and answers like the above. It is obviously not as comprehensive as the author's original Pro .NET Memory Management book. Instead, it complements and extends Pro .NET Memory Management, by providing a summary of various topics, while also mentioning some not covered in the original book.
