How do I call to suspend functions and wait for both to finish, but execute both in parrallel?
Copy code
suspend fun getTwoThingsInParrallel():List<String> {
    apiService.oneLongTwo()
    apiService.secondLongCall()
      ...
//do something with the result
}
Like this? I thought awaitAll was sorta bad practice? https://stackoverflow.com/a/57458479/1048909

Copy code
suspend fun foo(): List<String> {
    coroutineScope {
        listOf(
            async { apiService.onLongTwo() },
            aynsc { apiService.secondLongCall() }
        ).awaitAll()
    }
}
I have not heard anyone say
awaitAll
is bad practice ­čĄö
The accepted answer in the SO linked you sent is better than my version btw, it doesn't need the list

The
coroutineScope
builder function is specifically for the parallel decomposition of work in conunction with
async
,
launch
and friends.

Why do you think it's a bad practice?
