Discussion on: Do developers still need UML?

As long as diagrams are deemed an effective way of communicating a system design, it makes sense that there are standardized conventions for drawing them.

The problem is that UML does seem to have a bad rep. I think UML is often conflated with just class diagrams or seen as being too "enterprisey" and developers don't realize it's value in the right context.

I've the same opinion. Most of people which are complaining on UML simply didn't work with it.
