Learn how to develop mental models used by seasoned software engineers

The mental models behind data modeling and process modeling are at the heart of programming. Join Fred Zirdung, Head of Curriculum at Hack Reactor, in observing and deploying these key concepts.

Along the way, you'll also practice clean construction practices by deconstructing a problem into sub-problems that are implemented by small, well-defined components. This is a glimpse into how professional software engineers think.
