The only significant difference I am aware of (beyond naming things), is that
async
in C#/JS/Dart uses implicit context (in C# that depends on the thread you are calling from, and in JS/Dart that's the event loop context), while in Kotlin we decided to make the context explicit.

@elizarov: That difference is minor, but potentially significant for people who used
async
in other languages without understanding how contexts work.
