This term, I got hired for a co-op internship at a small software company in Kitchener.
After a few days of playing with jQuery, this is what I came up with:
It’s a “Trivial Collatz Simulator”. The user types in a number, and the program simulates the Collatz procedure (with animations!) until we reach 1.
The program is written using jQuery. On each iteration, it uses Ajax to query a local server (written in PHP), to do the arithmetic and return the next number in the sequence. That’s about it.
