Hack Reactor Overview

Go beyond the usual canned toy problems and get a taste of a more realistic problem solving process.  

Data modeling and process modeling are at the heart of programming. Join a professional engineer in observing and practicing these key skills, using small real-world examples.  

Along the way, you'll also practice clean construction practices, deconstructing the problem into sub-problems that are implemented by small, well-defined components. This is a taste of how professional programmers tackle problems!

Data Modeling Translate an open-ended real-world problem into appropriate data structures.  

Process Modeling Manipulate those data structures to solve the problem.
