    Hi All! I am curious what modeling tools and diagrams y'all are using, if any, to plan and design your workflows. Is UML still a thing amongst professionals (are you adhering to UML notation) or are you a fan of other diagram styles? I am still exploring all the intricacies of Prefect Flows, Tasks, StateHandlers and am wondering how to best visualize these objects and interactions. BTW: I myself have not deliberately used a specific diagram type in since I got out of high school. I rather used mix of diagram types and notation styles that I thought would serve the needs of the task at hand. However, I believe there is value in upping the game a bit, and why not starting with a Prefect workflow 🙂 Looking forward to your thoughts! Cheers, F

    Hi @Florian K. (He/Him)! I'll let community members answer your question but wanted to say welcome to Prefect!

    Thanks @Jenny, me and my team actually use Prefect for a while now, but since we are working in hydrological engineering, the budget that's necessary to really dig into the workflow details typically goes into other parts of the project. Hence still exploring...

    My Master’s is in hydrology. Nice to see Prefect being used there.

    we use pycharm and use this plugin when we really need to diagram something https://plugins.jetbrains.com/plugin/7017-plantuml-integration, but if youre asking for database models, we use graphviz and its integrations with django and/or sqlalchemy
