Software Development

The development of commercial software is usually a result of demand in the marketplace, while enterprise software development generally arises from a need or a problem within the enterprise environment. Software can be developed for a variety of purposes, the three most common being to meet specific needs of a specific client/business (the case with custom software), to meet a perceived need of some set of potential users (the case with commercial and open source software), or for personal use (e.g. a scientist may write software to automate a mundane task).

  • Linux if a freely distributed open source OS that runs on a number of hardware platforms. The Linux kernel was developed mainly by Linus Torvalds and it is based on UNIX. Because it’s free, and because it runs on many platforms, including PCs and Machintoshes, Linux has become an extremely popular alternative to proprietary operating systems.

Although it shares many of the features and structures of the full Java language, it was developed independently. JavaScript can interact with HTML source code, enabling Web authors to spice up their sites with dynamic content. JavaScript is endorsed by a number of software companies and is an open language that anyone can use without purchasing a license.

  • SDLC

    Acronym for software development life cycle (SDLC) and also synonymous with software process and software engineering, it is a structured methodology used in the development of software products and packages. This methodology is used from the conception phase through to the delivery and end of life of a final software product.
