Topics covered: 

  • Using async/await: Learn how to use the new async/await keywords to define and run asynchronous work.
  • Actors: Find out how to use the actor model to easily protect shared mutable state in a synchronized container.
  • Tasks: Dive deeper into the Task type, which powers all asynchronous tasks in Swift's modern concurrency model.
  • Task Groups: Use a Task Group to group multiple tasks together and run them concurrently, while using a familiar Array-like syntax to iterate over the results.
  • Custom Asynchronous Sequences: Use the power of async/await in your own asynchronous work, by learning how to create custom AsyncStreams.
  • Testing Asynchronous Code: Asynchronous code can be a challenging beast to test. You'll learn everything you need to tackle this challenge.
