Great slides, loved it despite not having audio. Would love to see it made into a screencast someday.Nice work, guys.
Hi there. First off, the slides are really great, even without the audio! So thanks a lot for making them available!
I do think I might've found a little typo in slide 26: the last bullet says "obj->free.next" but it should be "obj->as.free.next" because you need to access the "free" field of the union called "as" (like the code in slide 15).
Yes, that is definitely a typo. Good catch.
You mention a "long life GC" patch but I haven't heard of that type of patch. Can you provide a link?
