The Unified Modeling Language (UML) is the standard notation forarchitecting software and systems. Even though the UML has existed for years,no book has offered the fresh perspective on the industry standard that UMLfor Mere Mortals does. The book introduces the UML to those technical andnon-technical readers who are stakeholders in software development projects,but are not hard-core modelers. It does so in a manner that is easy tounderstand, addressing the core concepts of the UML that all readers need toknow to address the UML in terms of the specific concerns of thestakeholders. But above all, the book most important feature is that it ispragmatic. The authors share real world experiences and focus on what thesereaders will run into on real world projects.
