Tools-in-Action
Architecture

Diagraming is one of the most important communication tools for sharing your project and architectural ideas to your colleagues and teams. In this workshop walkthrough, attendees are exposed to an open source tool we host online for designing architecture diagrams like an expert. Attendees are walked through the following in just 30 mins:

  • open and explore the tooling in your favourite web browser
  • explore the provided asset libraries for drag-and-drop designing
  • learn about the three types of diagrams that make up a good design
  • create your first simple logical diagram
  • create your first simple schematic diagram
  • create a detailed diagram
  • how to import and export diagrams and elements from a diagram

This session is an introduction to the free online workshop available for attendees to jump right into after the session. Each of the individual labs in this workshop are stand alone, allowing the attendee to focus on anything of interest without having to work through the previous labs. If you're looking to become more proficient in sharing your ideas, architectures, and projects visually to wider audiences you can't underestimate the value of a good diagram. Join us to learn the tips and tricks that make a good diagram such a good communication vehicle and how our tooling eases your design tasks. Then head homewards with a free online workshop just waiting for you to explore!
