How Big is this Object on Windows Phone

Category: MobileJoel Ivory Johnson @ 06:44

I wanted to validate some of my understanding on the amound of memory that a .Net instance occupies on Windows Phone and sent a request to Abhinaba Basu of the .Net Compact Framework team for more information. He promptly responded with a nice explanation of how a .Net object is laid out in memory. Instead of reposting his work I'd like to refer you to his blog and the article he wrote explaining this. I'll be making some references to it in the near future.
