The underlying idea of a dispatch semaphore isn't difficult to understand. Remember that a semaphore is nothing more than a variable that can be incremented and decremented in a thread safe manner. The most challenging aspect of a dispatch semaphore is correctly using it. Working in a multithreaded environment is complex. Semaphores help you manage that complexity.
