[swift-users] Server side swift application ?

I have to say that I am far from an expert in low level network coding, even if I started using Distributed object in 93 with NeXTStep, and I can build network connection with the basics, listen, bind, accept ... There is an interesting network code in swift with these basics on the IBM swift playground.

I wonder what kind of limitations are no longer relevant ?

And I found CocoaAsync very interesting to read because of the intensive use of GCD

And maybe it would be interesting to know who use what today with swift to put a server or a client in use?
