What is Data Modeling?
When we talk about modeling data we're talking about representing an object, be it a real or virtual object, by saving information about it. Creating accurate data models is harder than it sounds, and it has serious implications on what you can do with your software. Starting off with the right model can empower you, and that's what this class is about.
What is covered in this class?
In this three hour workshop, we'll be talking about how to represent real-world objects (like books, people, products) and abstract items (like metadata about a user, or a website, or an action) and doing a few excercises.
What do I need to attend?
NO programming experience is required, and this class is helpful for Programmers, Product Managers and anyone who has an interest in how information is stored.
You will need a laptop, and a text editor (not MS Word, something like Sublime Text).
