If you tell me about sequence diagrams editor two months ago, I will probably give you a blank look. However, now I know that it is a great help to our work.
You see, two months ago, we were assigned the task to build a website from scratch. It is not just any site but an ‘organisation’ that is so steeped in tradition, hierarchy, offices and all that thingmajic. So, as the people who are responsible do it, we actually did not know where to start, whom to find information from and what to plan.
We have one team member, Andy who is an expert in structures and plans. He told me he is a time-table person as he has his daily stuffs drawn out in charts! LOL! Oh well, at least he is so organised in planning when to spend time working on our site and got his work done. So, he drew out all the structures, sequences and diagrams of the site.
That enable us the ease of branching out our duties and assignments. Now, I am all for sequence diagram because it makes things less muddled. It was a life saver, I must say.

Sequence diagram to build a website? Do we really need this to build one from scratch? How about a blog. It’s so easy, isn’t it?

scrop – I am not talking about a bunch of IT literate people sitting down to get a site up. I can get my personal sites up within 5 minutes, that’s how long I need to process PayPal. But how about getting a 2,000 years old institution done with equally ancient method? Hehehe. We, the people undertaking the project aren’t familiar with the runnings of the ‘institution’ and those who are in the know, aren’t IT literate. Hence, we need to draw out things to do from the ground up.
