    :broom: Zig port of Bob Nystrom's simple mark-sweep GC

    I recently completed my first Zig project - a port of Bob Nystrom's simple mark-sweep garbage collector (a modern classic!) from C to Zig.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • mark-sweep

    A simple mark-sweep garbage collector in C

    This post explains a few parts of the program but I can't do justice to Bob's original article which I highly recommend reading. His C implementation is included in the project repo and is also available on GitHub.

  • zig.vim

    Vim configuration for Zig

    Out of the box Vim works well enough as an editor for Zig but the experience is a bit underwhelming. So I installed the Vim configuration for Zig plugin get syntax highlighting.
