Simple experimentation with jQuery

This term, I got hired for a co-op internship at a small software company in Kitchener.

The job posting required primarily Java programming, but the company uses a combination of Java (for the back end) and Javascript (for the front end). I did not have much experience with Javascript and web programming, so they asked me to learn jQuery and Ajax, and a bunch of other things.

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.
