Today I went down the path of designing the initial database schema of a work project I'll be kicking off in the next day or two. And then it had me thinking . . .
Do current Full-Stack and/or Backend developers actually use architecture design tools any more?
Back in my early days of the software development industry, it was common for a senior developer or architect to create a UML design doc of their projected Class & Method interactions for the platform. And in turn they created the necessary UML document for the database structure to support their overall software design. Nowadays, at least in the past 5+ years for me, I haven't seen such a wholistic document created.
So what are "modern" developers & architects doing? Winging it?
