Hi, I love the diagram standards in the appendix.
What kind of tool do you recommend to best create and edit such diagrams?
I've tried with Gliffy (the standard one in Atlassian's Confluence) but it isn't really cutting it for me.
Thanks!

Thanks! I don’t use computers for diagramming, I usually do that on a whiteboard. In order to get the drawings into the book I used SketchBook and a Wacom tablet—that still feels like using a real pen.

Thanks Roland for your reply!
My issue with that is sharing and maintaining those as time passes. I'll ping you once I've found the diagramming nirvana smilie
