Teams adopting Agile approaches to software development could be jumping immediately from conversations to coding. The critical steps of modeling and thinking should not be skipped, because although software is delivered quickly, it is poorly architected. Unified Modeling Language (UML) has had a reputation for being document heavy, and therefore rejected. This training reverses that mindset, and shows you how UML can be an integral part of any Agile process. This is a course not just for programmers, but for all members of an Agile team looking to communicate more effectively. If you’ve experienced sprint deliverables not meeting customer expectations we can help you better communicate the key architecture and design decisions in a visual, industry standard format.

Students will be expected to have read the course case study, so that we can quickly jump into making our first diagrams.

Sequence Diagrams for Details
State Machines for Everyone
Organizing with Class Diagrams
All members of an Agile team (Scrum Masters, Product Owners, Developers) can benefit from this course. A goal of UML is to describe what needs to be built in an easily understood graphical format (a picture is worth 1000 words). This course is for anyone who wants to convey the key analysis, design and testing decisions without using massive textual documentation.
