Using restful-booker-platform / create a model of the application that shares details such as:

  • How the front-end of the application is built and how it connects to the back-end
  • What APIs the platform has and which API connects to which
  • How each part of the system talks to one another
  • What tools and libraries it uses


  • You will need to research the application in different ways. For example the product itself, the codebase and its documentation.
