UML Essentials for Agile Development Training

Level: Intermediate
Rating: 4.4/5 4.44/5 Based on 9 Reviews

Teams adopting Agile approaches to software development could be jumping immediately from conversations to coding. The critical steps of modelling and thinking should not be skipped, because although software is delivered quickly, it is poorly architected. Unified Modelling 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.
