CCATP #751 — Bart Busschots on PBS 140 of X — UML Class Diagrams

Bart and I are back from summer vacation to kick back into gear on Programming By Stealth. As you may remember, we’ve been learning all of the tools we’ll need to rewrite, test, and document Bart’s password generation library xkpasswd from perl to JavaScript. In order to start the rewrite, we need to understand the structure of the code we’re going to write, and instead of writing up a long text requirements document, we’re going to use a standard software diagramming language called UML Diagrams. In particular, we’re going to be using UML Class Diagrams.

Bart will probably do most of the diagramming himself as he dusts off decades-old code but we need to learn how to read UML Class Diagrams ourselves, so it will be another tool in our toolbelt.

Most podcasts would stick to everyday examples, but not here at the Podfeet Podcasts. Instead, Bart will teach us some Particle Physics along the way and you get that for free with this installment of Programming By Stealth.

You can find Bart’s fabulous tutorial shownotes at pbs.bartificer.net.
