Imagine that you perform an API request to fetch a bit of JSON. That response will become an array of objects, once decoded. Too often, though, I see developers littering their views or creating helper functions, all to add a bit of behavior or formatting to how the data is rendered. There's no need for this. Instead, you might consider wrapping each item within a simple POPO, and then add your behavior and formatting to this class alone.
