SiriusCon2016 - Embrace the Power of Design. Core Principles for Creating Effective Model Visualizations


Published on

Nowadays design is at the center of every business decision, as usability and problem solving are not enough to ensure user adoption: your solution must also be graphically delightful and pleasant to use.

This is particularly true for any graphical modeling tool created with Eclipse Sirius.

This 30 minutes talk is meant to be a concise guide throughout a set of structured and clear techniques for easily generating effective visual solutions to graphic modeling challenges. You will learn ideas and principles that can be applied to any diagram, during the model representation building process, wherever image and text come together to convey a meaning.

After this walkthrough you will be an Effective Model Visualizations pro ;-)
