Did you ever need to configure Maven dependency to local JAR? It’s rarely needed, but when it is, it’s good to know how to do that correctly.

One of the simplest cryptographic algorithms is Caesar cipher. It’s not really secure, but sometimes you may encounter it in some exercises or crackmes.

Continue reading Linked List – remove elementIn this post we’ll implement another algorithm for Linked List – insert element at position. The algorithm works in linear time in the worst case.

Continue reading Linked List – insert element at positionLinked List is a simple data structure. Implementing it from scratch helps to understand its properties. We’ll implement Linked List add, size, and print its contents.
