Description

“We value working software over comprehensive documentation.”—_The Agile Manifesto_

This precept has typically been misinterpreted as “don’t write documentation,” although “no documentation” is clearly not what the manifesto says and certainly wasn’t the intent. However, this misinterpretation reflects the fact that it seems like many software teams have lost the ability to communicate what it is they are building. It’s no surprise then that these same teams often lack technical leadership, direction, and consistency. Simon Brown shares approaches and tools for visualizing, documenting, and exploring your software architecture.
