Whether you are a young developer or a seasoned professional, one of the hardest parts of software development is finding a juicy project to work on. Hackathons are the solution to that problem.

This is part 2 of my previous blog, if you haven't read the previous one, I strongly suggest you read that before diving into this blog.
In this blog, we will take a further look of JVM garbage collection (GC) - the available garbage collectors given by JVM or more precisely HotSpot JVM.

One of the greatest tools in the functional programmer’s tool belt is the notion of composure. It’s a pattern that allows you to take two things and combine them, like LEGO pieces or the segmented tracks of a train set, and join them together in a myriad of ways with different structures or pathways each time.

Most software engineers have heard of Java or JVM garbage collection (GC) but probably not all of us have paid much attention to it, so we rely a lot on the default settings. Especially for me, being an engineer from a non-JVM language background, the majority of my time was spent on C/C++ development. I didn't get into how garbage collection works until I started working in a position in the IT industry.

I am an engineer, and I have daughters, so I am big on encouraging women in STEM and sharing my love of math and science with them. We were planning a trip to Cape Canaveral and my friend suggested I get the book “Women in Science: 50 Fearless Pioneers who changed the World” by Rachel Ignotofsky. After finding it on Amazon, I immediately went to the index to see if I approved of the book or not. It needed to have three women in it for my approval. It did, so I bought it and the girls enjoyed reading it on the trip.
