Some time ago I talked to you about our work on creating a profile mechanism for
The announcement OF Michel Chaudron's
talk at the Jeudi des Modèles
conference series: Modeling effectively - insights from empirical studies raised some interesting discussions
Probably this title of this talk should be “the proof you all been waiting for”! Next
The well-known modeling expert (AND book writer) Michael Blaha
has just posted a series OF youtube videos FOR beginners showing the development OF a UML class diagram FOR a library DOMAIN.
What I LIKE about the videos IS that he starts WITH a very basic model that keeps refining AND changing until reaching the final result, following MORE OR less the same process that we would follow IN practice. Again, very illustrative FOR beginners.
The FIRST video IN the sequence IS the following:
Today I've given a talk at the Agile Tour Nantes
where I explore the relationships BETWEEN software modeling and agile practices. For many agilists, the perception is that modeling is a useless activity that should not be part of the core agile practices. But, is this really the case? Can both cross-fertilize each other?
Today I feel LIKE remembering Tony Hoare's great sentence on software design, part of his 1980 Turing Award Lecture (published in Communications of the ACM 24 (2), (February 1981): pp. 75-83)
There are two ways of constructing a software design: One way is to make it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies, and the other way is to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies. The first method is far more difficult.
