Software Development Life Cycle
The software development life cycle begins with the ideation process, where a concept is developed, and the requirements are listed down. Once complete, the designing phase starts where the workflows are orchestrated, layouts and UI are designed, and more. After this, the main work starts- which is the development.
Development can be done through hardcore programming via Java, C++, Python, R, and more. Unit testing is also done by the developers only where they check the developed functionality in their local developed environment. After this, the codes are locally deployed to the testing environment, SIT, or UAT environments.
When all the codes are fixed, they are locked in the repositories like Github. Incremental class files are given for that particular portion of the codes if any further change is needed. When these are deployed to the production environment, only then the end-users will be able to use the software and its functionalities.
There are two processes through which the SDLC is carried out— Waterfall and Agile method.
