[swift-users] Swift Concurrency and Actor model

I was not aware .Net Core interesting ...

Kotlin on an other side, we have already Scala and my objective is to see on a real project how I can do the same with swift, not forced to have the same kind of technologies, but at the end able to deliver the same kind of capabilities and performances to the user.

For now Vapor is very nice regarding simplicity, capabilities on sever side... GCD for concurrent stuff.

And maybe implementing a simple kind of actor would be not so hard I believe. In fact the important thing with Actor and Akka is the implicit capability to send remote messages, it remind me the NeXT PDO capability. 

We have the queue thing with GCD.
