This week's giveaway is in the Java/Jakarta EE forum. We're giving away four copies of Java EE 8 High Performance and have Romain Manni-Bucau on-line! See Develop a program which simulates the Hamming Code error detection routine. The program must be able to calculate the hamming codes for character strings and provide a mechanism for single bit error detection.
First, a bit of business: you may not have read our naming policy on the way in. It requires that you use a full, real (sounding) first and last name for your display name. Joke names and "handles" aren't acceptable at the Ranch. You can change your display name here. Thanks!
As to your question: do you know what Hamming Codes are? Do you know any Java at all? If the answer to the second question, especially, is "no", then I think you're going to need to hire some help. We're not real big on doing people's work for them. Otherwise, let us see what you've got so far, or what you've thought about, and I'm sure we'll be able to give you some advice.

If this is for a course, then the answer is definitely no. The assignments only get harder, and if you pass the course, the next course will build on what you learn from this course.
If this is for work, and it is an option, then why not? In my case, I sometimes (although rarely ever get the option to) do this myself. I just write up a proposal (with a budget justification), contract it out, and manage it.
