Fun with UML

SearchSoftwareQuality.com Staff

The Unified Modeling Language (UML) is the shining star in someone's firmament. But for most of the technology world, it is like Cinderella -- that is, if Cinderella never got to go to the dance. UML is like sensible shoes, plodding along.

The International Software & Productivity Engineering Institute (INTSPEI) has tried to change all of that, to embrace, if you will, the funny person within the inner geek of UML. The group launched a contest, inviting people to share their UML jokes. Now the winners have been chosen.

These are some funny schema! First prize went to Victoria Sklyar, who created a UML activity diagram that traced Hamlet's famous "To be, or not to be" soliloquy. In addition, Edward Galiaskarov won a prize as the most active participant, as he created several small masterpieces of UML drollery. One, philosophical in nature, uses a UML state-chart diagram to represent a Yin-Yang model of the Universe.
