Software development is the process of computer programming, documenting, testing and bug fixing involved in creating and maintaining applications and frameworks involved in the software release lifecycle and resulting in the software product. The term refers to the process of writing and maintaining the source code.

Software development may include research, new development, prototyping, modification, reuse, reengineering, maintenance, or any other activity that results in software products.

This is as discreet as it should be written about the term “Software Development”. It is undoubtedly one of the vast terms in the IT world. Of course for software development, specifically, software developers are needed and not software engineers because there is a difference. Let’s just stick to the topic. People often talk about certain software development methodologies. Some of them are as follows:

Agile development

Groups utilize agile development to limit hazards, (for example, bugs, cost overruns, and evolving necessities) while adding new usefulness. In every single deft strategy, groups build up the product in emphasis that contains little augmentations of the new functionality. There are various types of agile methodology, including scrum, crystal, outrageous programming (XP), and highlight driven turn of events.

Agile development methods are like fast application improvement (see beneath) and can be wasteful in enormous associations. Software engineers, chiefs, and associations acquainted
with the cascade strategy (see beneath) may experience issues acclimating to an agile SDLC. So a hybrid approach frequently functions admirably for them.

DevOps Deployment

DevOps isn’t only an improvement system yet additionally a bunch of practices that underpins a hierarchical culture, sending fixates on an authoritative change that improves joint effort between the offices liable for various fragments of the advancement life cycle, for example, advancement, quality confirmation, and tasks. Organizations that use DevOps techniques benefit by altogether diminishing chance to advertise and improve consumer loyalty, product quality, and worker profitability and productivity.

Waterfall development

Many believe the waterfall strategy to be the most conventional software development method. The waterfall method is an unbending direct model that comprises successive stages (requirements, design, execution, confirmation, upkeep) zeroing in on unmistakable objectives. You should complete each state before starting the next one. There’s typically no cycle for returning to alter the task or bearing.

Rapid app development

Rapid application development (RAD) is a dense improvement measure that creates a top-notch framework with low speculation costs. The capacity to rapidly change is the thing that permits a particularly low speculation cost. The rapid application method contains four stages: prerequisites arranging, client plan, development, and cutover. The client plan and development stages repeat until the client affirms that the item meets all prerequisites.

Have you ever thought of not sticking to the basics of software development and get it designed specifically according to your needs of the business? Hashe Computer Solutions deals with several domains in custom software development. So, what custom software development actually is?

Custom Software Development is the way toward planning, building, incorporating, scaling, and overhauling programming answers to address the squeezing needs or accomplish targets of your particular business.

Software developers must keep in mind the lifecycle while they design software to meet customer expectations.

Software Development Life Cycle of SDLC is a systematic cycle for building programming that guarantees the quality and rightness of the product assembled. SDLC measures plan to create excellent programming that meets client desires. You should finish the framework improvement in the pre-characterized time span and cost. SDLC comprises an itemized plan which discloses how to plan, assemble, and keep up specific programming. Following are the phases to SDLC:

Requirement Analysis

The requirement is the principal stage in the SDLC cycle. It is led by the senior colleagues with contributions from all the partners and area specialists in the business.  This stage gives a clear image of the extent of the whole undertaking and the foreseen issues, openings, and orders which set off the task.


When the prerequisite examination stage is finished the following SDLC step is to characterize and archive programming needs. This cycle is directed with the assistance of the Software Requirement Specifications’ report otherwise called ‘SRS’ record. It incorporates all that which should be planned and created during the task life cycle.


There are two kinds of design in this phase. One is HLD which is High-level design and the other is LLD which is low level design.

High-Level Design (HLD)

  • Brief portrayal and name of every module
  • A blueprint about the usefulness of each module
  • Interface relationship and conditions between modules
  • Base tables distinguished alongside their key components
  • Complete design charts alongside innovation subtleties

Low-Level Design (LLD)

  • Practical logic of the modules
  • Information base tables, which incorporate sort and size
  • Detail of the interface
  • Addresses a wide range of reliance issues
  • Posting of blunder messages
  • Information and yields for each module


When the framework configuration stage is finished, the following stage is coding. In this stage, engineers start to fabricate the whole framework by composing code utilizing the picked programming language. In the coding stage, errands are isolated into units or modules and appointed to the different engineers. It is the longest period of the Software Development Life Cycle measure. In this stage, the Developer needs to follow certain predefined coding rules. They likewise need to utilize programming devices like compiler, mediators, debugger to produce and execute the code.


When the product is finished, it is conveyed in the testing climate. The testing group begins testing the usefulness of the whole framework. This is done to confirm that the whole application works as per the client prerequisite. During this stage, QA and the testing group may discover a few bugs/deserts which they convey to engineers. The advancement group fixes the bug and sends it back to QA for a re-test. This cycle proceeds until the product is bug-free, stable, and working as indicated by the business needs of that framework.


When the product testing stage is finished and no bugs or mistakes left in the framework then the last arrangement measure begins. In light of the criticism given by the task chief, the last programming is delivered and checked for sending issues assuming any.


When the framework is sent, and clients begin utilizing the created framework, the following 3 exercises happen.

Bug fixing – Bugs are accounted for due to certain situations that are not tried by any means

Update – Upgrading the application to the more up to date forms of the Software
Upgrade – Adding some new highlights into the current programming

The primary focal point of this SDLC stage is to guarantee that necessities keep on being met and that the framework keeps on proceeding according to the determination referenced in the main stage.
