The sudden move to remote work has thrown quite a few proverbial wrenches into people’s lives, and especially for those who don’t have experience with remote work. The main thing I find lacking is human connection and here I propose one way that may help teams bring it back.
I’m here to tell you that visual programming, and diagrammatic reasoning in particular, is a formidable tool-set if used the right way. That is, it only seems to work well if based on a solid foundation rooted in mathematics and computer science. We already abstract our code in order to make it easier to handle — doing it using visual methods such as diagrams is just another way of achieving this.
