I've been looking for solutions that allow me to write clean and (most important) reliable concurrent code. I would love to discuss some of those solutions and find out if they are any close to what Swift team want to implement in Swift 4+.

Hi Anton,

Many people have thoughts and opinions on this (some held very strong, some not so much).  We hope to kick off discussions about concurrency sometime after the Swift 4 stage 1 projects are complete (with the tentative goal of getting a baked concurrency story into Swift 5).

In the meantime, we’re prefer to stay focused on getting Swift 3 out the door, then move on the Swift 4 stage 1.  Thanks!
