Coding on the Right Side of the Brain: How Visual Arts Can Play a Role in Systems Development


Presented by WWCode Toronto and Chief Technologist of Intelliware, BC Holmes
The IT world borrows a lot of language from art domains: we design, we architect, we diagram. And the IT industry has frequently dabbled in formalized visual design processes. Flow charting, UML diagramming, etc. But those processes seem to have limits: rarely has any picture-to-working-system generation technology produced good results, and rarely have any visual artifacts (other than, say, UI images) been managed and versioned with the same rigour as we track code.
In this session, BC will discuss some ways that thinking about problems visually can influence the process of developing IT solutions.
