Loran Briggs' Summary

I recently finished my Undergraduate studies at California State University of Los Angles in Computer Science and am currently a Masters candidate as well. I am a independent software developer / web consultant. I am proficient in multiple programing languages and familiar with close to a dozen others.

I have experience with Java, Node Js, Ruby on Rails, Windows 8 apps, HTML/CSS/JavaScript, WordPress, PHP, SQL, databases, email campaigns, and more...

On my off time I love to backpack in the High Sierras, Rock Climb, Tango and read a great Vince Flynn novel.

My goals are to become a successful computer entrepreneur and/or join a dedicated team working on exciting new technologies.

Loran Briggs' Projects

  • Double Pendulum and Choatic Motion

    • January 2011 to March 2011
    Team Members: Loran Briggs, Daniel McBride

    The motion of a single pendulum can be expressed with a second order differential equation; however, the motion of a pendulum hanging from another pendulum is an entirely different system. The motion of a double pendulum can, in some cases, be chaotic. In this paper will describe the motion and behavior of a double pendulum, as well as discuss its chaotic nature.

  • Mathematics of Quatrainment

    • August 2010 to December 2010
    Team Members: Loran Briggs, Daniel McBride

    The game of Quatrainment is a simple game where you flip over tiles of a four by four grid to match a target grid. This is an example of a finite-state machine, and in this paper we will be discussing the steps to solve this puzzle with a unique solution using the fewest number of moves. We will write a program that will solve the game in the fewest moves possible. In order to do this we will have to completely understand the mathematics and the programming behind Quatrainment.
