About

Nathan Higley

Welcome to my website. As a brief overview about me, I enjoy programming, gaming, working out, Mathematics, and basically anything relating to Linux and computers. I’m originally from a more rural area but am currently a college at Liberty University studying Computer Science with a Cyber Security cognate and a minor in Mathematics. I have programming experience in C++, Python, Java, Bash, and some PHP and am also very involved with the Cyber Security programs at Liberty. I am members of both the Mid-Atlantic Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition team and the Cyber Defense Club at Liberty. You can see some of my work below and also my contact information in case you want to reach out to me in some way.

Work

record

Record is a small python program I wrote to enable audio recording from the command line on Windows where it is difficult to find such a program.

Wallpaper Changer

A C++ program that I implemented from a Bash script that changes the desktop background based on the current battery percentage. I wrote this program to work on Windows since the original only works on Unix based systems.

RocketPi

RocketPi is probably one of my coolest projects. I constructed a model rocket with a payload of a Raspberry Pi Zero W with additional sensors, a Lithium Polymer battery, and a voltage transformer. The data from the flight was accessible immediately afterwards via WiFi hotspot on my phone as well.

AudioToVideo

AudioToVideo is a small GUI python program I created to utilize the ffmpeg libraries to optimize the creation of single image videos with longer audios. It was created with Podcast type material in mind that would be uploaded to YouTube. It drastically reduced the time necessary for me to create the videos versus using a traditional video editor.

HackTheBox

HackTheBox is an online resource for users to practice and develop their cyber security skills. I have completed some of the boxes on there and plan to try more to further develop my abilities.

pyev3

pyev3 is a collection of python programs written for the ev3dev operating system which is a version of Debian Linux which runs on the Lego Mindstorms EV3 robotics platform. I created a few programs with this, most notable of which is WiiControl, which allows the user to control a robot with a Nintendo Wii remote.
