Recently, I attended a software engineering development course. Indeed, the course was valuable to imparting the desired software engineering skills for aspiring software engineers. Today, software systems continue to evolve in terms of features and supportive tools. Difficulties in managing software development can be attributed to the challenges inherent to planning activities as software features evolve over time. Previously, software engineers would utilize on frameworks and tools to plan tasks methodically. It is widely recognized that software features have dependencies, but still, the process of software development is largely based on “learning by practice (Domann…
gives a detailed summary of basis for data collection and the software development methodology adopted with prescribed steps for the research in the achieving of the project aim and objectives.
3.1 Software Development Methodology
To avoid software crisis, selecting the right software development methodology for the planning, analysing of the requirements, design, evaluation, implementation, testing and maintenance is crucial and critical…
Agile Software Development, 6 Advantages
Agile development is a strategy of software development in which the process occurs though short increments. The phases of the development process occur continuously in iterative cycles, involving a requirements phase, design and implementation, testing, and reporting. Stakeholders and designers meet after each increment to discuss what has occurred, re-evaluate requirements and determine priorities. This allows for greater transparency between clients…
Software development is a very important aspect of a company’s program or database they use to keep track of their productivity and databases. There are certain steps and methods that go into making and establishing these programs. Two methods that I am going to discuss is the waterfall method and the agile development method.
The waterfall method was originally defined by Winston W. Royce in 1970 (Hughey 2009.) The waterfall method is a linear sequence that goes from the requirements of the…

3.1. Reread “The Manifesto for Agile Software Development” at the beginning of
this chapter. Can you think of a situation in which one or more of the four
“values” could get a software team into trouble?
Manifesto for agile software development:
1. Individual and interactions over Process and Tools.
- It is the first value proposition of the manifesto. This tool should be
used for capturing requirements, version control, project planning,
number of other simple processes.
It is recommended to push for at least 30% of our software development to be using the agile software development method which, “is found to deliver much better outcomes than the traditional, waterfall ones” (Vogel 2014, p. 2). Solutions evolving through collaborative efforts and cross-functional teams will definitely promote continuous improvement and enable quick, flexible responses to change. There are typically a number of key steps in our development…
Agile and Waterfall are two different methods that are used in software development. They are ways of development. The Waterfall method model is a well defined and is exactly as it’s described. It is a linear style model that starts from a starting point to an end point. The stages are: Analysis, Design, Construction, Testing, and Support. (Schwalbe, 2012) Agile on the other hand is a fairly newer term used to describe new approaches that focus on programming teams and business experts.…
Agile Software Development (ASD) has in the recent years been an emerging development approach in the South African software development industry. The agile approach is continuously improving with time and companies are now identifying that, there are still difficulties in adopting the agile approach and how software is developed in an agile environment (Greer & Hamon 2011). Aleid (2015) explains agile as a set unconventional development methodologies,…
Testing is an important part of software development life cycle. It is performed to
ensure quality of the developed system. Testing includes a set of investigative activities
that can be planned in advance and conducted systematically, to assure the stakeholder
that system fullls all the requirements gathered during requirement gathering phase.
Software testing is one of the key elements in software projects that is often referred
to as verication and validation. Verication…
