Making Metaphors that Matter: Michael Keeling, Mike Velichansky

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In this paper and talk we'll present our experiences with using architecture metaphors, how they helped us, and some tips we learned for making great metaphors that improve team communication and architectural discussions. Our experience grew out of the IVET project, a collection of software tools to help shoppers of a regional grocery store chain plan menus, find recipes, create shopping lists, and clip e-coupons. The team built a set of web services in addition to a web client and iPhone app.
