Sorry for being a link-bot today - I meant to include this one in a
previous mail but I forgot, and it was just too good a resource to skip
entirely :-)

Another resource the Mono VM-coders might find interesting are the
proceedings [1] from the Usenix JVM symposium I attended back in April.
It was the first one, held down in beautiful Monterey, CA, and was an
excellent 2 days, even for a CLR-focused person. 

There was lots of good coverage of the internals of other JVM
implementations (in particular see the SableVM talk), GC algorithms
(contrasting M&S vs M&C GCs, approaches to combine them), HotSpot
optimizations, bytecode (re)engineering, etc. - all the stuff that is
relevant to CLR hackers, even if our VM isn't processing Java bytecodes
