Visual Documentation Language

this Topic will be presented by Sonja Heinen

at November Meetup 2015, hosted by Tobias Pfeiffer

A picture says more than …how many lines of code?

Firstly this talk offers an introduction to a variety of established as well as experimental visual documentation methods. Subsequently, it explores the question whether or not these approaches can be applied to software documentation in a reasonable way. In this regard it takes a closer look at individual methods and estimates their corresponding affordances in terms of time, skill, resources and potential automatization. Eventually, this talk presents an initial attempt to translate existing docs into visual languages and discusses the according outcomes.
