Are there inter-notebook communication methods in common usage?

Since currently Cells in a given notebook execute serially upon "Evaluate All", what asyncronous approaches are available?

Has anyone experienced a need for such functionality?

I know there are textbooks being converted to Sage. I'm wondering if/how chapters share code.

I'm in a position where I'd like to share code between notebooks. In my case I have a lot of regular Python code in a notebook that implements a target tracker, which I would like to be able to reuse in other notebooks.

Yes there is a way. At times sage notebooks become too big so I define sage functions and store it in a plain text file with an extention .sage. You can call those functions from another file if you begin the file with

load "/path-to file/filename.sage"
