devconf us

DevConf.US 2021 ended their call for papers this last month and has announced acceptance for sessions to be hosted on September 2-3. 

It's the 4th annual, free, Red Hat sponsored technology conference for community project and professional contributors to Free and Open Source technologies coming to a web browser near you!

There is no admission or ticket charge for DevConf.US events. However, you are required to complete a free registration. Talks, presentations and workshops will all be in English.

I had submitted a few talks and workshops and here are my acceptances that arrived this week.


Designing your best architecture diagrams (workshop)

Diagraming is one of the most important communication tools for sharing your project and architectural ideas to your colleagues and teams. In this workshop attendees are walking step-by-step through using an open source tool we host online for designing architecture diagrams like an expert. Attendees work through the following:

  • open and explore the tooling in your favourite web browser
  • explore the provided asset libraries for drag-and-drop designing
  • learn about the three types of diagrams that make up a good design
  • create your first simple logical diagram
  • create your first simple schematic diagram
  • create a detailed diagram
  • how to export diagrams and elements from a diagram
  • design tips and tricks

Each of the individual labs in this workshop are stand alone, allowing the attendee to focus on anything of interest without having to work through the previous labs. If you're looking to become more proficient in sharing your ideas, architectures, and projects visually to wider audiences you can't underestimate the value of a good diagram. Join us to learn the tips and tricks that make a good diagram such a good communication vehicle and how our tooling eases your design tasks. 

Date: Thursday, 2 Sep 2021

Time: 13:30 - 14:30 EST (North America) or 19:30 - 20:30 CET (Europe)

The workshop is fully implemented and tested with designers and architects around the world and fine tuned to the beginning designer. Workshop is hosted online for your previewing pleasure. A short introduction video will go live just before the workshop starts.

The schedule has been posted, so hope to see you there!
