Rust’s Borrowing by Example

From Rust in Action by Tim Mcnamara

Constraint-Satisfaction Problems in Python

From Classic Computer Science Problems in Python by David Kopec

A large number of problems which computational tools solve can be broadly categorized as constraint-satisfaction problems (CSPs). CSPs are composed of variables with possible values which fall into ranges known as domains. Constraints between the variables must be satisfied in order for constraint-satisfaction problems to be solved. Those three core concepts—variables, domains, and constraints—are simple to understand, and their generality underlies the wide applicabilit
