This is my latest blog post, which is about dynamic arrays: http://minas-mina.com/2015/08/31/dynamic-arrays/

Constructive criticism is welcome.

"Dynamic arrays are allocated on the garbage collected heap" "Dynamic arrays can be sliced"

These are not wrong, but maybe a little bit misleading.

Static arrays and pointers can be sliced, too. And a slice of a static array or pointer is ... dramatic pause ... a dynamic array that doesn't necessarily refer to the GC heap.

I prefer the term "slice" to dynamic array. Because it's an unfamiliar term it helps prevent confusion for people who are used to what other languages call dynamic arrays.
