In this tour de force live coding session, an expert Python coach Reuven Lerner shows you how functions work behind the scenes and how you can use them in different ways.
From Developing Microservice APIs with Python by Jose Haro Peralta
In this article we will explain what web APIs are. You will learn that a web API is a specific instance of the more general concept of Application Programming Interface (API). It is important to understand that an API is just a layer on top of an application, and that there are many different types of interfaces.

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
