Inside Windows 8: Greg Colombo - Heap Manager

41 minutes, 28 seconds


Right click “Save as…”

The Windows heap manager has been around as long as Windows has, evolving with each release, getting faster, more reliable, and more secure. In Windows 8, the heap manager improves in two major areas: performance and security. In this video, Greg Colombo, a developer on the Windows kernel team working on the Windows heap manager, digs into the details. What are the changes that positively impact performance and security?

This conversation—conducted entirely at the whiteboard—provides enough introductory information to ensure that even if you have no idea what a heap manager is—or what the heap is, for that matter—you will after you watch this. The complexity in this discussion increases over time, but remains understandable all the way through. Greg is an excellent communicator! Huge thanks to Greg for taking the time to educate us.

Tune in. Learn.
