//FIXME memory leak — How to Build a Simple Garbage Collector

I'm very happy to announce our fourth meetup: Andreas Fried will be talking about Garbage Collection!

Functional programming encourages a coding style which focuses on what should happen, instead of how it should be done. But with increasing abstractions, automatic memory management becomes increasingly important, too.

Andreas will be giving an introduction into garbage collectors and show how to implement a very simple garbage collector for a Scheme interpreter.

The focus of this talk is on the fundamentals, rather than the latest and greatest (and most complicated) techniques in garbage collection. You do not need to know anything in advance.

Disclaimer: The majority of code presented will be in an impure language (namely C).

The presentation will be given in English. (Andreas is able to switch to German if everyone in the audience is comfortable with it)


18:30 Welcome and organizational matters

18:45 Andreas Fried: //FIXME memory leak — How to Build a Simple Garbage Collector

The talk will run for an hour.

After the meetup, we plan to go to the Pizzahaus for some interesting conversations and drinks.

The company is located in the Hoepfner-Burghof, on the third floor. You'll see signs posted to help you find your way.
