Using Tasks 101

I’m not sure if this is the right place to post this, but I spent a lot of time learning about Tasks recently for a project at work, and wrote up a blog post tutorial summarizing how to use them: https://www.lesswrong.com/posts/kPnjPfp2ZMMYfErLJ/julia-tasks-101

Feedback and corrections appreciated!

I really appreciate this post! Especially as someone who needed several attempts to wrap my head around both the concepts and the nomenclature of tasks/threads/coroutines/… (in general, not particularly in Julia).

Given that the reader already knows about the existence of hardware/OS threads (which I think is a given if one is looking for this kind of information), it’s straight to the point and very accessible :slight_smile:
