  2. multiprocessing
  3. asyncio
  4. Combination of above mentioned solutions.

Take Aways

This thing might be known to many. But this talk will make the audience more informed and bring clarity to their thoughts on GIL and different concurrency and parallelism model in Python. What should be the way to go with given task at hand.
