What do you know about .NET memory management? Should you care at all? Yes, it is all managed and automatic and the Garbage Collector takes care of everything. That’s a great achievement of managed runtimes in general – they provide this super nice abstraction of memory that is just there and we do not need to think about it at all, right?
Well, yes and no. For sure you may for years develop business applications earning money and do not touch a topic of .NET memory management at all. I’ve been there too. But, there is always more. There is always some edge case, some scalability problem, a memory leak or just not efficient resources utilization (wasting money💸). I’m not here today to convince you to that, tough. There will be time for this 🙂
Today I just wanted to invite you to my new initiative – a small quiz about .NET memory management. 32 questions that may, or may not, shed some light on you in the context of this topic:

Share your result, elaborate about questions! And as you see at the end, you can subscribe to the newsletter where I’ll be providing explanations of correct answers for every question.
And yes, this is a beginning of a bigger initiative https://dotnetmemoryexpert.com – more about it soon. In general, more and more GC- and memory-related content is coming!😍
