Software development is a procedure that comprises of computer programming, testing, documenting and bug fixing in order to create and maintain applications and frameworks that consequent in a software product.
Toronto, ON – 28th December, 2017 – In the field of software engineering, the term software development process refers to the procedure of distributing the work of software development into distinct divisions. This results in improved design, product management and project management. It is also referred as a software development life cycle.
Most of the modern software development process can be broadly labeled as agile. Amongst the other methodologies, waterfall, prototyping, iterative and incremental development, rapid application development and extreme development are the most frequent ones.
With the digitization of the modern world, software development has become an integral part, contributing to every aspect of the society-be it business or leisure or pleasure. The market of software development is highly competitive even though there is an existing gap between the demand and supply. In such a scenario, every bit of labor counts as valuable. As is the case with software development projects, a lot of the dedicated diligence goes to waste only due to insufficient foresight, incapable execution, limitations in budget or resources.
BluEnt shares an insight on software development best practices
Nevertheless, the good news is, it is always possible to push up the chances of success in software development and testing. If we study closely the approaches that all the successful development projects adopt, there can be seen a series of patterns and practices that are common. Some of these concurrent programming best practices include :
- Getting Your Hands On The Right Resources :
Recruiting the right people with relevant skills and experience is the base to build the entire project's success. When the right job is allotted to the right employee, the efficiency of the entire project shoots up. Apart from the human resources, it is essential to employ efficiency enhancing tools, invest in the latest equipments like PCs, development and testing softwares and platforms, and automated tools as well.
- Is the development process right ?
The entire software development process depends on the methodology or the kind of process that is adopted in the development project. The methodologies like agile, waterfall and the iterative spiral approach are all proven to lead to success. Selecting the right methodology that best suits the project in concern gets almost half the work done. Developing a small prototype and studying the feasibility and exploring new technologies is always a wise move.
- Set smaller milestones :
When you set smaller milestones under the bigger umbrella project, it automatically increases the tractability, ensures better control as well as risk mitigation. Aligning these smaller milestones with the bigger ones will efficiently meet the overall schedule and reduce delays caused by inter-dependency.
- Design optimization :
A modular and optimal design is to be aimed at-balance and distribution of functionalities over different modules can ensure higher success rate. It is the job of the designers to ensure that the approach selected for a particular project is applied well enough to maximum cohesion and minimal coupling.
These are a few specific ways to boost the software development procedures on the whole and bring out the best out of your hard work.
