Design after agile, how to succed by trying less


Stuart Halloway, Founder of Cognitect


I still create several diagrams about portion of my code. After I discovered PlantUML all my diagrams are plain text files that create the figures as I compile in Emacs, you can even render on github/gitlab issue tickets & PR’s. However, I still need to be more dilligent to reach these files before going to code. Sometimes I find that experimenting with real code helps me to see clearer and sometimes is just waste of time. Life is hard, right?


plans are useless, but planning is indispensable.


  1. Make diagrams

  2. Make tables

  3. Write prose
