The Falcon Innovation Project
An innovation project for Philippine Normal University's Faculty of Arts and Languages that schedules faculty, stores faculty profiles, and visualizes tracer study results.

MongoDB facilitates the database layer, with Mongoose as the Object Document Mapper. Instead of using the traditional REST API approach for communicating with the client, Falcon uses GraphQL.
The client part of Falcon uses React to translate the app's internal state to a view, Redux to manage the state, and Material UI as the design language and component library.
