Comparative Asynchronous Programming

Ash Furrow, Artsy

Different programming communities have different approaches to how they handle asynchronous programming. Some use callbacks, others use promises, and they all seem to have really strong opinions. This talk will focus on popular approaches to async programming used outside the Swift community, exploring how those approaches could fit in with the Swift language. Some paradigms are encapsulated in existing libraries, while others would need changes to the Swift compiler.
