When symfony first appeared in October 2005, many people heard about it mainly because of
its extensive documentation. Unlike with other open source projects, you don’t have to dig into
the symfony code to understand how a method works or what a feature does. Documentation
has always been a major concern among the symfony core team, and that’s why we wrote this
book: to leverage the adoption of the framework we initiated, to serve as a reference for the
1.0 release, and to allow enterprise use of a framework written primarily for professionals.
This book starts with an introduction to the core concepts of .NET memory management and garbage collection, and then quickly layers on additional details and intricacies. Once you're up to speed, you can dive into the guided troubleshooting tour, and tips for engineering your application to maximise performance. And to finish off, take a look at some more sophisticated considerations, and even a peek inside the Windows memory model.
What do we mean by an insecure medium? Well, in some dictionary or another, under the
definition of “insecure medium” should be a picture of the Internet. The world is evolving towards
interconnecting every computer, and people talk about connecting household appliances as well, all
into some wonderful global internetwork. How wonderful! You’d be able to send electronic mail to
anyone in the world. You’d also be able to control your nuclear power plant with simple commands
sent across the network while you were vacationing in Fiji. Or sunny Libya. Or historic Iraq.
