Playing around with await/async in Python 3.5
I can't think of a language feature I've been so excited by since closures. C# gave us async/await in 2012, then Scala in 2013, then Dart in 2014, then Python in 2015, then Javascript in 2016, and proposed for C++ 2017. How rare for such a transformative language feature to be so quickly adopted by mainstream languages.
