Mike Bernstein is obsessed with garbage collection, and he wants you to be, too. Bernstein's talk at GoRuCo 2013 takes you through a general overview of how garbage collection works and focuses on the connection between garbage collection and how programming languages are designed and developed, and how they interact with the system memory.

Bernstein also discusses the history of garbage collection, his experiences with garbage collection in Ruby and other programming languages. If you're a bit perplexed by garbage collection and need a general overview of the subject, this is a perfect presentation for you.
