software development

Software development is the Collective procedures involved in generating software programs, embodying all the stages throughout the systems development life cycle (SDLC). SDLC Methodologies support the design of software to meet a business requirement, the development of applications to satisfy the specified design and the installation of software to production.

A methodology should also support maintenance, although that choice may or may not be chosen, depending on the job in question.

The waterfall Version , the original SDLC method, is sequential and linear, generally following these stages in order:

1) Identification of required applications
2) Analysis of the software demands
3) Thorough specifications of the applications demands
4) Software design
5) Programming
6) Testing
7) Maintenance

The Often, several versions are combined into some sort of hybrid methodology as is true for open source software development (OSSD).

The History of software development goes back to about 1810, when Joseph Marie Jacquard developed holes Punched in cardstock to steer the patterns woven by his own looms. It wasn’t until 1949, but that John Mauchly developed the initial Programming language, Brief Code (later known as Short Code).
