I wanted to let you know about two new one-day courses I'll be
teaching at OGI's Center for Professional Development in Beaverton
March 10 and 11.
Practical UML (no it isn't an oxymoron) is a one-day course that
gets you up to speed on UML 2.0 and to use it to effectively
communicate your software design. We cover the basics of component
diagrams, activity diagrams, class, sequence and state diagrams...and
also present some new features that represent significant
improvements over previous version of UML. This class is targeted
specifically at those who may begrudgingly use UML, but want to be
effective communicators. We cover some nuanced useful stuff, not just
the same old, same old. To register see
The Art of Telling Your Design Story presents tips, techniques, and
guidelines for communicating your designs to others. By choosing what
to emphasize, understanding what's fundamental, and using progressive
realization techniques, you can unfold a design in successively
interesting parts. During class we'll use a planning template to plot
out a story and briefly experiment with some storytelling techniques.
Some stories we talk about are how to present / sell key aspects of
an architecture or present ideas to less technical folks.
To register see http://www.cpd.ogi.edu/coursespecific.asp?pam=2266
If attendees sign up for both courses before February 22, they are
entitled to a $25 discount.
Please feel free send me an email if you have any questions about the
courses and please pass this announcement to other folks you think
could benefit from these short courses.

"A man should learn to detect and watch that gleam of light which
flashes across his mind from within, more than the lustre of the
firmament of bards and sages. Yet he dismisses without notice his
thought, because it is his." --Ralph Waldo Emerson
Don't you want to take responsibility for your design?
