Development Methodologies and SDLC
Most software development organizations make use of a standard set of practices when developing software. This is commonly known as the software development life cycle (SDLC) and the method used to implement the life cycle falls loosely into two categories: Waterfall and Agile. We will briefly discuss each of these methods but acknowledge that there are many different variations and combinations of techniques. We cannot cover all the variations, but we hope to cover the main points of each such that the variations are simple modifications of what is here, not a radical first step into the world of applied methodologies.
