SkillsCast

Garbage Collection - The Useful Parts

17th January 2013 in London at The Skills Matter eXchange

This SkillsCast was filmed at Garbage Collection - The Useful Parts

This presentation will give the busy Java/JVM developer an overview of how Garbage Collection in the JVM works and the common collectors that are used. We'll also cover how to read and interpret the scary log format and most importantly, offer strategies to deal with badly behaving memory (e.g. The dreaded OOME!).
