Profile image Agile software architecture sketches and NoUML

Agility is about moving fast and this requires good communication. A consistent, shared vision is essential in order for teams to push in the same direction, but it's surprising that many agile teams struggle to effectively communicate the architecture of the software they are building. As an industry, we do have the Unified Modeling Language (UML), yet many people favour informal “boxes and lines” sketches instead. The problem is that such diagrams rarely make any sense, usually need a narrative to acco...

Profile image Understanding the unConference

Some weeks ago, I caught wind of an intriguing event being organised here in Jersey – the Island Innovators unConference – a technology and innovation conference (of sorts) - and in due course, was lucky enough to receive an invitation. In the lead up to the event I wasn’t sure what to expect – the list of attendees was impressive and knowing that these people felt it was worth travelling from all over the world to attend was reason enough for me.
