Presentation

Overview

From the moment you open up a website in your browser multiple virtual machines (VMs) are at work. The server generating the website might use Java, your browser executes JavaScript and maybe there is some Flash content running —  with everything being executed in a VM.

Virtual machines became increasingly important and popular after Google’s introduction of V8. We expect our code to run fast but let’s step back for a second and see how these complicated pieces of software work. With a better understanding of how your daily ActionScript or JavaScript code is being executed you might start coding a little different.

Join Joa and dive deep into the the world of virtual machines. Learn about different garbage collection strategies and understand why those beasts behave the way they do.
