re: Do developers still need UML? VIEW POST


In over 20 years of professional programming, UML was relevant for about 6 weeks of that time for me. (and never in production). I've implemented, designed, maintained or otherwise built successful products and services without ever needing UML.


Are you saying in 20 years you have never found it necessary to model or communicate system designs with diagrams or that you have not used UML as the standard for such diagrams?


Used flowcharts, boxes with arrows, post its. Salt cellars. Sequence diagrams. Good old fashioned collaboration. Not UML.

All of which are covered by UML
