Sketches and diagrams in practice

Sebastian Baltes, Stephan Diehl
2014 Proceedings of the 22nd ACM SIGSOFT International Symposium on Foundations of Software Engineering - FSE 2014  
Sketches and diagrams play an important role in the daily work of software developers. In this paper, we investigate the use of sketches and diagrams in software engineering practice.  ...  They worked in different countries and on projects from a wide range of application areas. Most questions in the survey were related to the last sketch or diagram that the participants had created.  ...  Acknowledgments We want to thank the participants of our survey as well as the software developers we interviewed and who shared their sketches with us.  ...

2011 2011 6th International Workshop on Visualizing Software for Understanding and Analysis (VISSOFT)  
Less is known, however, about the sketching and diagramming practices of computer scientists and software developers.  ...  Informal visualization in the form of sketching and diagramming has long been an established practise of professionals working in the fields of design, architecture, and engineering.  ...  DIAGRAMS/SKETCHING PRACTICES We use a series of lifecycle diagrams to show both the variation and the commonalities between the sketches and diagrams we followed.  ...

Sketching and Drawing in the Design of Open Source Software

Eunyoung Chung, Carlos Jensen, Koji Yatani, Victor Kuechler, Khai N. Truong
2010 2010 IEEE Symposium on Visual Languages and Human-Centric Computing  
In co-located software development, diagramming practices, such as sketching ideas out with a pen and paper, support the creative process and allow designers to shape, analyze, and communicate their ideas  ...  In OSS, text-based communication (e.g., mailing lists) dominates, and sketching and drawing diagrams collaboratively remains difficult due to the barriers imposed by distance and technology.  ...  We also thank the Linux User Group, Jose Cedeno, and Justin Gallardo for participating in our pilot study of the survey and interviews.  ...

that can better support complex and freeform everyday thinking practices.  ...  While common, this practice is little understood, particularly as it may relate to digital visual representation (such as information visualization) and sketch-based interaction.  ...  Lifecycles of Diagrams and Sketches We have also examined the context of externalization practices on a broader level by interviewing computer scientists about sketches and diagrams that were important  ...

Sketching and Conceptions of Software Design

David Socha, Josh Tenenberg
2015 2015 IEEE/ACM 8th International Workshop on Cooperative and Human Aspects of Software Engineering  
In this paper, we describe a study of sketching and design within a software organization in which hundreds of hours of video of development activity in situ were captured and analyzed.  ...  When researcher conceptions of design substantially differ from the actual design practices of those who are studied, researchers are at risk of seeing only what they are looking for and in this way miss  ...  Thanks to Natalie Jolly for critical reading and commentary of early drafts.  ...

Sketching & Drawing as Future Inquiry in HCI

Miriam Sturdee, Joseph Lindley
2019 Proceedings of the Halfway to the Future Symposium 2019 on - HTTF 2019  
By examining instances of existing practice in HCI, in this paper we establish recommendations and rationales for those wishing to utilise sketching and drawing within their research.  ...  We examine approaches ranging from ideation, diagramming, scenario building, comics creation and artistic representation to create a model for sketching and drawing as future inquiry for HCI.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS Thanks to the Sketching in HCI community, namely Makayla Lewis and Nicolai Marquardt, and all the practitioners that lend their research and practice for the discovery of others in this  ...

What vs. How of Visual Modeling: The Arrow Logic of Graphic Notations [chapter]

Zinovy Diskin, Boris Kadish, Frank Piessens
1999 Behavioral Specifications of Businesses and Systems  
It is argued that the task can be well approached in the arrow-diagram logic framework where specifications are directed graphs carrying a structure of diagram predicates and operations.  ...  The goal of the paper is to explicate some universal logic underlying various notational systems used in visual modeling.  ...  Acknowledgments We are indebted to Ilya Beylin (Chalmers University) for many disputes on the sketch notation, which always were stimulating and substantial.  ...

Finding formulas: Does active search facilitate appropriate generalization?

. (2) Likelihood of creating a correct new adaptation varied by performance on the searching task. (3) Asking people to sketch alleviated some of the negative effects of tell-and-practice, but sketching  ...  Appropriate generalization requires understanding what features of a solution are applicable in a new context and whether the new context requires modifications or a new approach.  ...  NH, LS, and RA performed the analyses, and NH and LS wrote the initial manuscript. KB and NN provided critical revisions of the initial manuscript. All authors read and approved the final manuscript.  ...

Goal Sketching: Towards Agile Requirements Engineering

Kenneth Boness, Rachel Harrison
2007 International Conference on Software Engineering Advances (ICSEA 2007)  
We illustrate the technique and introduce lazy refinement, responsibility composition and context sketching.  ...  This paper describes a technique that can be used as part of a simple and practical agile method for requirements engineering.  ...  If this is done the context diagram provides the vocabulary (entities and phenomena) that may be included in the goal sketch. In practice we find the goal sketch and the context sketch co-evolve.  ...
