My Coding adventure

Hello, I am a recent graduate from the University of Cape Town. I have a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and Applied Mathematics. I am interested in becoming a developer. If you are interested in hiring please check out my CV and we can get in contact. I will be posting any projects I am working on here. My Java is a little rusty so I will be working on small problems to familiarise myself again. My CV: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1qVs7YYqWrkn70xxv6EdDgAH3k7LVA2unwC8tLzQCS4M/edit?usp=sharing

Hello everyone Before I dive deep into the theory of sorting algorithms, I thought it would be a fun exercise to create my own algorithms and see how they compare to those I will learn about. The algorithm I have prepared today simply compares the on...

Reverse a String

6 May 2022 1 minute read 1 comment Cooldudue

This was a pretty easy one. From the previous problem, I knew how to convert a string to an array of char. Then I had to make a copy of the array but in Java, it's not as easy as saying a=b. Then I looped through the first array replacing each letter...

This was an interesting challenge as I had no idea how I was going to get each digit into an array. In python, you can just convert the int to a string and then index the string directly. I found this interesting solution on Stack Exchange to convert...
