We are happy to invite you to our second meetup in Sofia. Martin Tsarev, Tech Lead at Zuhlke Engineering, will be discussing about the importance of memory management in high-level programming languages like Java and C#. After the talk we will have some time for technical debate and networking.

## Talk
Memory management is considered a "solved problem" in high-level programming languages like for example Java and C#. Memory allocation and deallocation are performed automatically by the language runtime and the developer usually does not have to care what happens "under the hood" – it usually works quite well. Due to this fact many developers are never confronted with memory management issues and either forget the practical relevance of it despite of the theoretical knowledge or completely ignore memory management.

In this talk we will discuss why deep understanding of memory management can help you develop better software and reduce the headache of dealing with severe memory issues. We will present some theory along with real world examples from different programming languages.

## About Martin
Martin is a graduate in Computer Science from the Technical University Darmstadt, Germany. He has been working in Germany as an embedded software engineer and has been developing mainly safety-critical low-level software in C and C++ for systems with very limited resources. Martin is currently leading enterprise software projects at Zuhlke Engineering Bulgaria.
