Everything in Ruby is an object.. but what is a ruby object? What does it look like? Where does it live? How is it born and when does it die? This talk will cover the implementation of the object heap and garbage collector in Ruby 1.8, with a focus on tools and techniques to understand memory usage, find reference leaks, and improve the performance of your ruby applications.
