Asynchronous programming. Await the Future

This is the third post of a series about asynchronous programming. The whole series tries to answer the simple question: "What is asynchrony?". At first, when I just started digging into the question - I thought that I know what it is. It turned out that I didn't know a clue about what asynchrony is all about. So, let's find out! Whole series: Asynchronous programming. Blocking I/O and...

Concurrency and parallelism are two different things

It may seem that there is no difference between concurrency and parallelism, but this is because you did not understand the essence of the matter. Let's try to understand how they differ. Concurrency is the execution of more than one task is being processed at the same time inside the application. An important detail is that tasks are not necessarily performed at the same time(but it's...
