I am a fan of /r/python and hacker news. During weekends I work on side projects or take pictures of things. In the past have a worked with building the infrastructure for large scale web crawlers, restaurant data and ecommerce solutions.
My career began as a designer; mostly creating and translating PSDs to HTML. You can view some of my design work here. I slowly moved to picking up some fullstack development skills. And finally I pursued a backend development career exploring data in the energy industry, where I led a team of enthusiastic software developers.

Writing CHANGELOGs can be a grueling task but git logs can help you create a suggested CHANGELOG. The intention of this tool is to remove some of the grunt work involved checking diffs to write CHANGELOGs. You can view it on github or read the docs or download it from pip.
