I am planning to do SCEA certification, i want to become an architect and hoping that this certification will be best initial step towards it...
Please throw some light on UML and its impact on this certification.
=>I have never used UML before and planning to read martinfowler's UML(2.0) Distilled book and do some groundwork...
=>Any freeware very useful to draw UML? any links to download???
=> Any inputs regarding "UML Complaince"?
UML Distilled is, as far as I am concerned, a very good introduction to UML and also a very nice reference book - you do not have to read a lot, just find the diagram type and look at the pictures introducing the different elements of the diagram.
UML is essential for the SCEA, since, as far as I recall, there is a requirement to use UML when drawing the diagrams that you are to hand in.
