We believe that .NET developers cannot achieve systematically high-performance software solutions without
thoroughly understanding all three areas. For example, .NET memory management (facilitated by the CLR
garbage collector) is an extremely complex field and the cause of significant performance problems, including
memory leaks and long GC pause times. Without understanding how the CLR garbage collector operates,
high-performance memory management in .NET is left to nothing but chance. Similarly, choosing the proper
collection class from what the .
