Understanding the C/C++ memory model | Software is Crap
I know that a lot of people struggle with understanding the memory model introduced in C11/C++11.

What a C programmer should know about memory – Marek Vavrusa
In 2007, Ulrich Drepper wrote a “What every programmer should know about memory”. Yes, it's a wee bit long-winded, but it's worth its salt. Many years and “every programmer should know about” articles later, the concept of virtual memory is still elusive to many, as if it was ... a kind of magic. Awww, I couldn't resist the reference.

Memory inside Linux containers | Fabio Kung
Or why don't free and top work in a Linux container? Lately at Heroku, we have been trying to find the best way to expose memory usage and limits inside Linux containers. It would be easy to do it in a vendor-specific way: most container specific metrics are available at the cgroup filesystem via /path/to/cgroup/memory.stat,…
