Umple is a model-oriented programming technology that makes certain modeling abstractions available to software developers.
Umple can be used as a modeling tool to build UML models, a programming tool to program in a more abstract way, a code generation tool for creating high quality code from UML models, or all three at the same time.
The following links will help you get started.
To get going quickly: First familiarize youself with Umple using UmpleOnline. Load the examples and see UML models rendered diagrammatically and textually. Then generate code in Java, PHP, and Ruby, or else generate various other data formats such as Ecore models

Learn how to perform test driven development, by editing the tests, building to get a failed test, then editing the code, and building to see the tests now pass.
Once you have made changes, learn how to deploy. You initially won't have authority to do all the steps, but you should understand the process.
