Concurrency and threads are important concepts in computer science, and are especially relevant in the programming language Swift. Concurrency refers to the ability of a computer to run multiple tasks at the same time, while threads are a way to achieve concurrency by allowing a single process to have multiple execution paths.
In Swift, concurrency and threads can be implemented using a variety of tools, including the Grand Central Dispatch (GCD) framework, OperationQueue, and more. These tools allow developers to create asynchronous code, which can improve the performance and responsiveness of a software system by allowing tasks to be run in the background.
In the next series of posts, we will explore the various ways to implement concurrency and threads in Swift, including the pros and cons of each approach. We will also discuss best practices for using concurrency and threads in Swift and the trade-offs that need to be considered when designing for concurrency. Stay tuned for more insights on how to effectively use concurrency and threads in your Swift projects!
Async await in Swift A language feature called async await, enables you to construct asynchronous code that seems to be synchronous.
