Code, Release, Retire: The Full Life Cycle of Software

Software, like any product, embarks on a journey from birth to retirement. By understanding each stage of the software life cycle, developers can create top-tier solutions that cater to clients' needs.

Here's a snapshot of the software life cycle stages:

Requirement Collection:
The journey starts with gathering client requirements to define the software's desired features and behavior.

Armed with requirements, the design phase unfolds, encompassing software architecture, detailed planning, and risk identification.

At this stage, developers craft the software code and generate essential documentation.

Once developed, the software is meticulously tested, employing both manual and automated techniques, to ensure it meets expectations.

During this stage, the software reaches the client and is installed on their systems.

Post-implementation, the software requires ongoing maintenance to guarantee smooth, uninterrupted functionality. This stage involves bug fixes, feature enhancements, and timely updates.

Inevitably, the software reaches its twilight and is retired, either due to technological progress or the software becoming obsolete.

Did you know that some species of jellyfish go through a life cycle where they start as polyps, turn into free-swimming medusas, and then revert back to their polyp stage? It's like the software life cycle, but with jellyfish!
