Storytelling for Software Professionals
May-June 2013 (vol. 30 no. 3)
pp. 9-12
The first book I read about storytelling was by David Armstrong, then vice president of Armstrong International. I was skeptical at first, but got caught up in the stories. As I got more into patterns, I found that in trying to tell readers about my context, problems, forces, solutions, and resulting context, I was simply trying to tell a good story. Over time, I learned that the better the story, the more useful the pattern. I still believe this 20 years later. The following article is not only about storytelling, but it tells its own good tale. So, sit back and enjoy!
