Re-implementation of @binding and @State (from SwiftUI) myself to better understand it
/*:
This is a concept re-implementation of the @Binding and @State property wrappers from SwiftUI
The only purpose of this code is to implement those wrappers myself
just to understand how they work internally and why they are needed,
⚠️ This is not supposed to be a reference implementation nor cover all
subtleties of the real Binding and State types.
The only purpose of this playground is to show how re-implementing
them myself has helped me understand the whole thing better

Concrete proposal for async semantics in Swift

Async/Await for Swift

Introduction

Modern Cocoa development involves a lot of asynchronous programming using closures and completion handlers, but these APIs are hard to use. This gets particularly problematic when many asynchronous operations are used, error handling is required, or control flow between asynchronous calls gets complicated. This proposal describes a language extension to make this a lot more natural and less error prone.

This paper introduces a first class Coroutine model to Swift. Functions can opt into to being async, allowing the programmer to compose complex logic involving asynchronous operations, leaving the compiler in charge of producing the necessary closures and state machines to implement that logic.
