Java Pub House

Garbage collections are like the engine of a car, we know it works, we know that it powers the car, but not much else, but once it breaks down, we usually don't have a too much of a clue on how to fix it. In this episode we talk about how garbage collections happen, the things it looks for, and more importantly, how it changes your code (there are certain things that you can do to make your code garbage collector friendly). Having this knowledge will help you in the long road on troubleshooting any garbage collection issues (including tuning!), so take a listen to the garbage man!
