More About Me

A Little About Myself


My name is Kevin Hira and I am 22, studying Software Engineering at the University of Auckland, New Zealand. I have experience in programming in languages such as Python, Java, MATLAB, C/C++, C#, and R. I have also done some web development with HTML, CSS, and Javascript.

In my spare time, I like to play games, listen to music and socialise with my friends. I also have a passion for mathematics and science and enjoy a good problem to solve.

Here are the current projects I've been working on. Visit my GitHub profile at github.com/kdhira

Web/Jekyll
Show of your photo albums

This is a mini project that displays Google Photos Albums, with links to them, as Google Photos doesn’t have a profile with public albums per se.

An example of the UI can be seen here: http://kevinhira.com/photos

If you are unfamiliar with Jekyll or Liquid templates, you might want to head over the Jekyll website and take a look at what it can do. Take a look at the README in the repository for more info about how to install and use Photos.

Web/Jekyll
Quickly build a dashboard of links

Quick Link is a simple but effective way to consolidate links to different websites all into one place. Think of it like a dashboard of website links, but the look and feel can be customisable.

Implemented using Jekyll and Liquid templating, there currently exists a rather base solution that can be easily modified. Using SCSS and the template html files, the webpage UI can be modified with ease. Jekyll/Liquid’s data templating also makes it simple to add new links to the page.

Python
A markdown to LaTeX parser

MarkTeX is a text parsing application that’s aim is to convert easy to write Markdown text into a LaTeX document. It was designed to be used in conjunction with note writing at university so that I can type up content from lectures quickly and have it output in a nicely laid out document without much formatting hassle.

Using MarkTeX requires installation of a TeX/LaTeX distribution, as MarkTeX will only generate LaTeX code and will not compile the code on its own. It is free, and available for most (if not all) major operating systems. You can find out more by visiting their website: https://www.latex-project.org/get/
