THE EXHIBIT is a group project which ideas originally came from the needs of sharing student’s projects to showcase to the world.   THE EXHIBIT is the place where we can Learn new things, get ideas for your next projects, help others to improve and meet potential employer.   THE EXHIBIT was created by three students: Lu Ye, Janusshan Paramasivam, and Josh Nguyen, and was build completely by them. With the help of three design students from GA’s UXDI course: Linette Yang, Paula Abejero, Paulo Saroma; the app was build from scratch to finish in just one week.   This collaborate project helps us the SEI and UXDI students to gain direct experience that is relevant to our future carrer.     Interesting fact about THE EXHIBIT:

  • It was build within only 8 days.
  • Total amount of hours the SEI students put in are estimated at least 250 hours.
  • The entire code base has at least 10,000 lines of code as of due date.

Key Learning:

  • React is a very powerful and dynamic tool, but we have to do it “The React Way”.
  • In React, state and props management is important.
  • Component management is the key.


  • Creating a fully functional app in a small amount of time takes a lot of effort.
  • The newest version of React and React Router required to use functional component for many features, and it makes class based component difficult to work with
