Reduce Memory by Using More - Aaron Patterson - Rubyday 2020

Most programmers don't need to think about allocating or deallocating memory, and they have the garbage collector to thank for that! In this presentation we'll discuss the latest developments in GC compaction as well as how the GC allocates and arranges memory internally.

The GC manages memory so that you don't have to, but we're going to see how it's actually done!
