standing for web-based visualization of Algorithms and Data Structures is an e-learning platform for students taking the self-titled course Algorithms and Data Structures at the University of Vienna. It utilizes the experiences of previous similar projects of the research group Workflow Systems and Technology, such as VADer and NetLuke and extracts the minimalistic mantra: no installation or configuration effort, multi device support, clear structure of didactical content and simple extensibility for developers. Based purely on HTML5 and JavaScript with the smallest use of external libraries it is designed according to the Model-View-Controller architectural pattern and works as a fat client.
