Good overview of optimisation software

There’s a great overview of software available for optimisation in Optima (volume 103, 2017), the Mathematical Optimization Society Newsletter, including the article “A Lightning Tour of the Optimization, Modeling Software Landscape” written by COIN-OR’s chair Matthew Saltzman. This newsletter also includes a good tutorial for COIN-OR’s PuLP, written by its developer (and optimisation guru/consultant) Stu Mitchell.
