Hi Brian,

Can you please elaborate on why the GCD code in UIKit needs the main queue to be specified to update the UI whereas in SwiftUI, that is not required?

Thanks

Hi Brian,

Forgot to ask… In the challenge, we used GCD to perform an operation on a background thread, then we accessed the main thread to update the UI. Is there a way to do this using OperationQueue as well?

Thanks

I also have the same question: “why does the GCD code in UIKit needs the main queue to be specified to update the UI whereas in SwiftUI, that is not required?”

Every app comes with a Main queue, which is a serial queue that executes tasks on the main thread. This queue is responsible for drawing. It can be challenging or even overwhelming to prepare for a job interview or Every Cocoa application has a minimum of one thread , the main thread.
