Description

The Vada Project is is an upgrade to an existing web application for a collaborative debate platform used to facilitate good faith argumentation and evidence based reasoning using classical Indian theories of knowledge sources (pramāṇa vada). This web application is designed for classroom use to facilitate critical thinking, debating, and archiving arguments and counterarguments as structured by an Indian philosophical debate style known as Vada. The goals of this project are to design an intuitive and usable interface (HTML+CSS), a stable back-end (PHP+MySQL), and a maintainable codebase managed using static-analysis tools and continuous integration (GitHub Actions).
