CodeStock 2019

Knoxville’s CodeStock 2019 is a wrap! This was my 4th year attending. A few notable talks:

  • Maarten Balliauw gave an excellent presentation on .NET memory management. The presentation slides provide an overview of the CLR’s garbage collector along with helpful examples for diagnosing memory issues.
  • Jeff Fritz showed off his Twitch stream for live coding and promoting CS education.
  • Jeremy Likness presented Blazor / WebAssembly as a means of running C# code in the browser. This technology is still in preview but may have potential to take off in the next few years. I’m especially interested in WebAssembly as a means of porting games into the browser.

Thanks to all the speakers! Looking forward to Knoxville BSides 2019 next month.
