Best Software Team App

##UML Class Diagrams by Lucidchart

Ever tried to figure out someone elses code? Looking at how one fuction talks to another, having to open file after file to trace what is being called to do what? If you are programming in an object oriented language, tracing out what does what is a challenge. Sure, someone can go make a UML diagram showing everything that chains together, but in the fast paced daily multiple release environment of cloud software developement, who has the time to keep these diagrams up to date manually? UML Class Diagrams from Lucidchart solves this by autogenerating the UML Class Diagram dynamically right from your code base. No painstaking documenting, or having to dig through a huge number of files to connect the dots. Just look at the chart, open the file, and away you go.
