Superfast modeling in PlantUML
Receiving for the hundred time a vague drawing of a puppet with an arrow pointing at a database? Failing to print on paper a schematic with a jungle of rectangles and intersecting lines? Struggling to align parts of a schematic over and over again? If you detest unclear functional or technical diagrams and prefer clear and easy-to-make designs, this workshop is for you!
After refreshing your memory on the most useful diagrams in the modelling language UML↗, we will start working with PlantUML↗. PlantUML is free and open source software in which you describe your analysis or design in plain text. With a push on a button this will subsequently be converted to quality UML diagrams.
PlantUML supports various ways of working and several graphical output formats such as PNG, SVG and PDF. By means of guided exercises and joint evaluations, you will learn how to use PlantUML and discover its many advantages. Bring your laptop or tablet. A laptop is preferred and you can already install PlantUML. However, it is also possible to work online via a web interface.
