Deja Vu: Constructing Apps from Cliches

If you look at most websites even vastly different websites like Facebook Youtube or Amazon you'll find that they have a lot of things in common: a profile with user information a news feed a rating system instant messaging etc. But right now if someone wants to create a new website even if they want their website to have these common reused features ("conceptual clichés") they have to implement them from scratch. The idea behind Déjà vu is to create a platform where these conceptual clichés can be integrated without having to do any extra work—it will be a platform for end-users who have no coding background to create a novel web application with these common features in an easy intuitive way without writing a single line of code.

I have been working on this project for the summer and it has been a lot of fun and I've learned a lot. I will continue this project for the SuperUROP because I can gain even more different experiences due to the evolving nature of the project and also from how the SuperUROP will prepare me on presenting my work to the general audience. I'm looking forward to continuing working on this project during the semester!
