Open Source

I write open-source projects to play with new programming languages or concepts. Given the nature of my work is to code for a living, I tend to favour other pass times such as baking or reading, but sometimes I’ll do stuff like the content below.

Selfie Montage

A set of simple scripts to find all the selfies on my computer and make a video out of them. I made this to create a transition video for myself, whereby I wanted to show how my facial features had changed after having been on hormone replacement therapy for two years. Written using Python and the OpenCV library.

Post with screenshots and video. Code on GitHub.
