What is SDLC?

Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC)

Software Development is the development of software for distinct purposes. For software development, there is a specific programming language like Java, Python, C/C++, etc. The entire process of software development isn’t as simple as its definition, it’s a complicated process. Accordingly, it requires an efficient approach from the developer in the form of the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC).

Proper planning and execution are the key components of a successful software development process. The entire software development process includes 6 stages. Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) is the common term to summarize these 6 stages.

SDLC specifies the task(s) to be performed at various stages by a software engineer/developer. It ensures that the end product is able to meet the customer’s expectations and fits in the overall budget. Hence, it’s vital for a software developer to have prior knowledge of this software development process.
