At OpenTable, we have an engineering culture that empowers us to research, experiment and learn.
In an effort to foster innovation and to try new ideas, Chris Cartlidge, Nick Balestra, Tom Martin and myself started to work on a side project nicknamed big-mars. Our project is a mobile-first, responsive web application that uses Falcor by Netflix.
One powerful concept that Falcor has is its query model, in which you access your data as if it was a single JSON model in memory. You can navigate your data structure the way you would navigate a JSON object; either with a “dot notation” (e.g. restaurant.address.city) or with an “array notation” (e.g. restaurant[‘address’][‘city’]).
Really easy and intuitive.
