What is garbage collection?

Garbage collection is a CLR feature which automatically manages memory. Programmers forget to release the objects while coding ….. laziness ( Remember in VB6 where one of the good practices is to set object to nothing). CLR automatically releases objects when they are no longer referenced and in use. CLR runs on non-deterministic to see the unused objects and cleans them.
One side effect of this non-deterministic feature is that we cannot assume an object is destroyed
when it goes out of the scope of a function. Therefore, we should not put code into a class
destructor to release resources.
