What Is Software Development


Software development is the process of developing software through successive phases in an orderly way. This process includes not only the actual writing of code but also the preparation of requirements and objectives, the design of what is to be coded, and confirmation that what is developed has met objectives.

Typical phases of software development:

  1. Identification of required software

  2. Analysis of the software requirements

  3. Detailed specification of the software requirements

  4. Software design

  5. Programming

  6. Testing

  7. Maintenance

Important Qualities for Software Developers


Analytical skills: Developers must analyze users' needs and then design software to meet those needs.

Communication skills: Developers must be able to give clear instructions to others working on a project. They must also explain to their customers how the software works and answer any questions that arise.

Creativity: Developers are the creative minds behind new computer software.

Detail oriented: Developers often work on many parts of an application or system at the same time and must therefore be able to concentrate and pay attention to detail.

Interpersonal skills: Software developers must be able to work well with others who contribute to designing, developing, and programming successful software.

Problem-solving skills: Because developers are in charge of software from beginning to end, they must be able to solve problems that arise throughout the design process.

What does Web Development mean?

Web development broadly refers to the tasks associated with developing websites for hosting via intranet or internet.

The web development process includes web design, web content development, client-side/server-side scripting and network security configuration, among other tasks.


Web development ranges from creating plain text pages to complex web-based applications, social network applications and electronic business applications.

The web development hierarchy is as follows:

  • Client-side coding

  • Server-side coding

  • Database technology

What does Web Design mean?

Everything about your website - including the content, the way it looks, and the way it works - is determined by the website design.


Web design is a process of conceptualizing, planning, and building a collection of electronic files that determine the layout, colors, text styles, structure, graphics, images, and use of interactive features that deliver pages to your site visitors.

What Is the Difference Between  

A Web Developer and A Web Designer?

A web developer would be responsible for using various components like the engine, transmission, wheels, etc. to construct a fully-functional car that is error-free in its technical aspects.

Web developers work with programming languages like HTML, CSS, and Javascript to create websites and web applications.


They will also most likely utilize other languages to set up email services, user authentication, databases, and other technical aspects of websites.

A web designer would be responsible for the aesthetic design of the car (the comfort of the seats, the layout of the dashboard, etc.) as well as the convenience in driving and riding in the car.

Web designers are not primarily responsible for knowing how the code works – but making sure it’s aesthetically pleasing and user-friendly for website visitors.


They will utilize graphics design software – including products like Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Inkscape (an excellent alternative to Photoshop), and GIMP.

What is Mobile Application Development

A Mobile App is a software program for your mobile phone. These programs range in size and complexity from a simple flashlight application to a complex program on your phone.
