You’ve heard about Python’s GIL. But what is it really? What does it
do, both good and bad?

Come learn all about the Python GIL. You’ll learn about its history,
all the problems it solves, all the problems it causes (that we know
about!), and what it would take to remove the GIL.

Attendees should be familiar with the terrors inherent in
multithreaded programming, and be comfortable with a little C code in
the slides.
