Software

What is Software?

Software is a collection of programs that enables a computer system to perform a particular task. Software is intangible. It is a logical sequence of programs and data, which can form an operating system, for example. There are different forms, executables directly linked to the computer and specific to it (for example, Microsoft is only compatible on certain PCs), or source files with their own programming language. Good software meets a specific need and performs the tasks asked of it. In addition, the software provides tasks for the computer to perform. The Berne Convention is used to protect the uniqueness of software so that it is not stolen or copied. Each creator has a license, which fixes the rights of the latter. They are also protected by trade secret laws so that software creators have a monopoly on what they have created and do not steal their data.

What is software development?

Web software development designs maintain, build, and transform software. Software publishers, service companies, or even freelance workers are responsible for developing the software. They can do anything. They know the software by heart. It was John Mauchly, in 1949, who developed the first programming language.

Different fields define software development, so it is complicated to define it correctly. From the systems development cycle (SDLC, which stands for “Software Development Life Cycle”), it is possible to create new software. These methodologies include software design, software development, and deployment thereof.

The original SDLC method is linear and sequential and is driven by a precise scheme:

            1) identification of required software

            2) analysis of software requirements

            3) Detailed specifications of software requirements

            4) software design

            5) programming

            6) test

            7) maintenance

During the design, the goal is to meet the applicant’s needs and satisfy him based on specifications. For the construction of the software, the programmers write a source code and use a compiler (transformation of a source code into object code). The programmer performs tests to see if everything is going well, and there are currently no problems. In the end, all this gives the deliverable, which groups together all the files produced upstream. It can be a computer application, a component, or even a patch.

What are the differences between software development and a website?

They are two very different programming types, and each has its advantages and disadvantages. Web development is done using web technologies, while software development is done on computer applications, using different programming languages ​​or tools. Their job as a web and software developer has changed a lot; web developers create sites by setting up CMS (Content Management System), which groups together software to design or update websites, or web developers create custom applications using MVCS frameworks, or even those which use software architectures from APIs, languages ​​or even frameworks, some which compose applications with SaaS components. What sets them apart is that web development is used to develop and showcase new technologies on the web. In contrast, software development is used to create new computer applications. However, the web development program uses HTML, CSS, PHP, or even JavaScript code languages. Another important difference is that the web developer builds the websites you go to research what you want, while the software developer makes programs that you can install on the computer to do this. that you want on the computer, for example, to customize it or to be able to hack. The web development program uses HTML, CSS, PHP, or JavaScript code languages. Another important difference is that the web developer builds the websites you research what you want.

  1. Good day! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.

    Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast.
    I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions?
    Thanks
