UML Essentials for Agile Development Training

Level: Intermediate

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

Key Features of this UML Training:

  • After-course instructor coaching benefit
  • Case Study to practice techniques in real-world scenario
  • Learning Tree end-of-course exam included

You Will Learn How To:

  • Foster better communication between all Agile team members via diagrams
  • Build Activity Diagrams to capture the rich interactions between users and systems
  • Create Sequence Diagrams to explore alternative design solutions to support testing
  • Use State Machine Diagrams to model system behavior
  • Develop Class Diagrams to best exploit interfaces and inheritance
