Issue #100: Hundy

Weekly dose of all things Python.
 
One Hundred (One) Issues!

I am sure as most of you could tell from last week's weird issue numbering something was up! We were working hard to get this revamp out! We have also updated the site and submission process. 

Share an article with us and if it lands in newsletter get highlighted as a contributor in the newsletter!

We would like to especially thank Sarah Davies for our new beautiful header! You should probably check out her other awesome work here too.
