This book is aimed at intermediate Swift developers who are familiar with writing asynchronous applications and who want to make use of the concurrency features Apple introduced in Swift 5.5. The Kodeco Team and Marin Todorov look at async/await, tasks and actors.
Author: Kodeco Team and Marin Todorov
Date: February 2023
Audience: Swift developers
- 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.
