My name is Carson Seese. I am a 20 year-old-student, tech enthusiast, homelabber, and tinkerer (Doubtful that’s a word, but we’ll go for it). To save everyone time, here’s my TLDR, but feel free to keep scrolling if you’re curious.
- Junior at the Pennsylvania College of Technology studying Information Assurance and Cybersecurity
- CompTIA A+, Network+, and Security+ Certified
- Co-Presented at BSides DC 2019 “Hands on Writing Malware in Go”
- Operate my own homelab currently residing in my parent’s basement
- Alumnus and Mentor of FIRST Robotics Competition team: “Biohazard”
- Check me out on GitHub, LinkedIn, or Twitter
I’m 95% (more or less) self-taught when it comes to programming, so there is still a lot I have to learn. Nevertheless, the languages I have experience with are rated from highest to lowest for anyone who’s curious.
- Bash/Shell Scripting
This wouldn’t be a proper “About” page if it didn’t at some point mention what it’s being hosted on. Although I’m not necessarily pursuing a field in network infrastructure, one might say tinkering with servers, switches, and cables is a hobby of mine. A somewhat outdated post about my homelab can be found here, with a more updated plan of how I planned on upgrading the network here (spoiler alert: the upgrade was successful). I’m hoping to setup a dedicated page about my homelab at some point, but it might be a bit before I get around to that unfortunately.
Projects worth checking out
- BSides DC 2019 Presentation (Video and Notes)
- Really Simple Domain Generation Algorithm
- A basic Go library I wrote for the BSides presentation which generates domains in a predictable fashion.
- Another basic Go library also for BSides which takes data, chunks it, and sends it out in the form of DNS queries.
- Ever wanted to self-host a URL shortener (basiclly a HTTP redirector with a fancy UI)? Well now you can! (There’s obviously still a lot of work to be done)
- A collection of my personal dotfiles. I don’t necessarily recommend copying these, but if you have any suggestions or examples, feel free to make a PR! I am still new to vim and tmux.
