Frequently asked questions
Software development is the process of building, designing, and modifying computer software. Software development includes using programming languages to write the source code for a piece of software and testing, deploying, and continually supporting the software over time. It also includes the process of making modifications and improvements to an existing software program by re-engineering and rewriting source code, fixing bugs, and adding new features. Everything from the initial idea or conception for a software program to the final deployment and ongoing maintenance of the program can fall under software development.
