This talk was given at PyCon 2016 in Portland, OR.

As a new Python developer, trying to understand how memory management works in python can feel like a daunting task.

The documentation immediately jumps into difficult to follow concepts, especially if you don’t have a background in Computer Science.

I’d like to provide a simple, easy to follow overview of the concepts that a developer needs to be familiar with in order to scratch the surface of how memory management and garbage collection works in Python.
