Examples of visual communication in developer documentation with the Android Vocabulary Glossary
You can view the Android Vocabulary Glossary here.

This visual is actual a looping gif animation that provides an interesting, unique way of explaining getter and setter methods.
I’m blown away by the quality of these visuals. Someone with serious talent created a useful glossary like none I’ve ever seen. A lot of the vocabulary terms are also supplemented with code samples as well.
