I will give a general biased perspective of spin glasses. After introducing classical constrained models, I will try to convince you that we can use them to model glassy behavior and, in particular, slow relaxation to equilibrium. I will then generalize this framework to quantum systems where slow dynamics has been elusive for many years. Finally I will show how numerical techniques ranging from tensor networks to exact diagonalization may be employed in order to understand dynamical properties of such systems.
