A better understanding of Drupal module interactions thanks to UML
You already know that I dropped Drupal to move to WordPress but this doesn’t mean I’m very happy to report on people talking about the benefits (or disadvantatges) of using UML and MDE/modeling in general in their professional life.
In this case, Lin Clark explains how she thinks UML sequence diagrams are helping her work on the next Drupal version. A couple of extracts from the post: “Module interactions are the most important and most difficult part of Drupal to understand. Using a lightweight, slightly tweaked version of the UML sequence diagram has helped me understand these interactions more.” and “I believe that in many ways, doing a sequence diagram is actually a better sprint activity than a lot of the things we sprint on because it can be a more interactive process.” Again, very happy to read posts like this.
