Architecture diagrams visually communicate and document the high-level design of a solution. As the level of detail increases, so does the diagram’s size, density, and layout complexity. Using Sequence Diagrams, you can explore additional usage scenarios and enrich your understanding of the distributed architecture while continuing to communicate visually.

This post takes a sample architecture and iteratively builds out a set of Sequence Diagrams. Each diagram adds to the vocabulary and graphical notation of Sequence Diagrams, then shows how the diagram deepened understanding of the architecture. All diagrams in this post were rendered from a text-based domain specific language using a diagrams-as-code tool instead of being drawn with graphical diagramming software.
