One of the #python packages I've been developing the past couple of days is called #Tagsnag:

My students at university are handing in their projects via Git. This means, that we are faced with a bunch of repos structured in a similar way: Milestones are tagged, etc.

Tagsnag allows you to run the same #Git commands on all repositories, update them and also extract a specific file / folder from a certain version (tag / branch).

Going back to my alma mater to take engagement photos. My fiance lived five doors down from my dorm room in 2011.

That didn't seem right so I did the math and sure enough he was in 4th grade. He started college this semester.

Wow i've been in college for a lot longer than it feels like.
