Welcome to season 5 of the award-winning .NET Core Podcast! Check that link for proof.

Hello everyone and welcome to The .NET Core Podcast is a podcast where we reach into the core of the .NET technology stack and, with the help of the .NET community, present you with the information that you need in order to grok the many moving parts of one of the biggest cross-platform, multi-application frameworks on the planet.

I am your host, Jamie "GaProgMan" Taylor. In this episode, I talked with Oren Eini about RavenDB, why he took the time to create his own NoSql database engine, and the fact that he built it using .NET Core before it was released (back in the pre-1.0 days, when it was known as `dnx`), and some of the optimisation stories that he worked on when creating RavenDB.

Along the way, we cover what the GC (or garbage collector) is, performance issues to look out for when dealing with large JSON objects, and some tips that he has for those who want to optimise their applications.

The full show notes, including links to some of the things we discussed and a full transcription of this episode, can be found at
