I have avoided writing the next entry in my series on learning the UML for several weeks. I keep sitting down to write it but quickly get frustrated and give up. Today I tried to force myself to write the entry and I still came up empty handed. I’m running into a fundamental problem when teaching something: You’ve got to know the subject matter!
I planed to write an introductory entry which acted as a quick overview of the various types of UML diagrams. Unfortunately, this has not been as easy as I hoped it would be. The fact of the matter is that to write an introduction to something, you know to know more about it than I do (yet).
So, I’ve decided to skip this entry and to save it till last. When I’m done with all of my entries on the UML diagrams I will then write the diagram overview. After this is done I will piece all of the entries together into a short book and make it available freely on this website.
Look for the next entry to be on requirements gathering! Coming soon to this blog!
