When: December 11, 2012
Ken will be surveying key garbage collection algorithms. He'll be showing how they work, comparing their strengths and weaknesses, and even getting into practical applications unrelated to language implementation.
Ken Fox has been programming for over 25 years. He's amazingly lucky to have spent the majority of that time working with technology that we now take for granted: free software, Unix, TCP/IP, 3D graphics and the web. He is also a polyglot hacker with an unhealthy fascination for language runtimes and garbage collectors.
Ken now develops mobile apps and web services for Detroit Labs, a software services company in Detroit. In his spare time he mentors FIRST Robotics team 3322 in Ann Arbor.
