  • Video Tutorial

    Watch a 55 minute video presentation of GIL. It roughly follows the tutorial, though in some places covers a bit more material. It is slightly outdated.

  • Tutorial

    The tutorial gives you a jump start in using the library. It starts with a simple non-generic algorithm that is gradually evolved to be more generic, faster and more flexible. The tutorial covers most of what you need to know to make effective use of GIL, but does not systematically cover all aspects of the library.

  • Design Guide

    The design guide provides a more formal and complete description of the library, including the concepts and the design rationale.
