All professions are unique in the particular frustrations that they thrust upon their practitioners, and software development is no exception. The same physically intangible nature of software that makes it more difficult to recognize risks and requirements can also contribute to a general perception that software development is easier than it actually is. The [...]

Communication diagrams are another way to visualize the information more commonly represented by UML sequence diagrams. They are simpler than sequence diagrams and only show the messages that pass between the objects. See how you can create UML communication diagrams with draw.io.
Flowcharts, process diagrams, workflows, activity diagrams: No matter what they are called, they all visualize the steps, decisions and sometimes the interactions needed to get something done. There are many different types of flowcharts, and you can create them all using draw.io!
PlantUML lets you specify your UML diagrams in a text format, which is quite a handy shortcut for programmers. draw.io allows you to insert PlantUML and Graphviz DOT code and automatically adds the diagram image to the drawing area.
The Unified Modeling Language (UML) is a diagramming notation (language) that lets you visualize systems and software. Here is how to use the 14 different types of diagram and create them in draw.io.
State diagrams quickly show which states lead to each other, and what triggers a change of state. They are easy to create with draw.io and its built-in UML shape library.
You can create all types of UML diagrams in draw.io, as you have seen in previous posts. So far, we've covered use case diagrams, activity diagrams, class diagrams, and sequence diagrams. In this post, let's take a look at interaction overview diagrams. Interaction overview diagrams These UML diagrams are a combination of an activity [...]
UML sequence diagrams are the first highly detailed behavioural diagrams that you will create when using UML for software development. Learn how to easily create them using draw.io - even the most complex diagrams!
The Unified Modeling Language or UML notation is probably the most well known and regularly used visual representation of programs that you'll find in software development. There are a wide range of diagrams to help you specify your data and processes before you start programming. They help you clarify requirements and limitations, speed up [...]
