Programming: The language a computer understands is not the one in which we humans communicate, it needs something especially curtailed to exchange information and enhance knowledge with the machine. In order to do so, certain set of instructions are laid down, in different coded environments known as a programming language.
Compiler Optimization: Once we know the means to communicate, what becomes vital next is to know how much of it is required and when. It defines certain attributes to the programming language being used to execute the work at hand. Most often, these are less time consumption and memory occupied.
Embedded Systems: This gives a face to the machine. A programmed operating system is embedded in a tangible mechanical and electrical system interface, made of hardware parts. This dedicated functional device when put together and takes a form and shape, it is wired in such a manner to the man-made machine that any desired task can be performed through commands typed in for execution.
Software Systems: Intercommunication is vital for any form of communication to make it truly meaningful with a purpose. In the world of machine, this can be attained by enabling the software to be in sync with hardware which is supposed to be their backbone. Therefore, a smooth platform between the two, that is, the hardware parts and soft coded application, is together known as a software system.
Software Engineering: The elaborately classroom designed scientific principles, methods, and procedures with the aid of set of instructions that computer understands and comprehends is the heart and soul of the branch named software engineering. The outcome of this engineered process is a problem-solving product known to the layman as software, and this product thereby is sound enough to mitigate all real-time challenges.
Software Process and Management: The two keywords “process” and “management” is enough to trigger one’s understanding that the various processes involved in developing a software product demands efficient management so that the work carries out uninterrupted. Doing so, ensures collection, testing, execution, quality check, examination, reviews are all managed as and when need be. Had this not been in place, no product would ever be transformed as real.
Software Measurement: Two inevitable paradigms in any field of work measured to access the potential, reliability and growth of any asset are the productivity and quality. Such measurement gives us the picture of how what all attributes does a product have and for what are they best suited. Knowing the right nature of the right product is the key to excellent performance of any asset expected to perform.
Software Metrics: Metrics is no different from measurement but a bit more refined. Though it is not the exact same thing but often used as each other’s synonym. Metrics are closely related to the quantitative indication of the functioning of a software application through quality, development, and testing.
Software Testing: To sum this up in one word would be quality. After all, quality is all that matters at the end in any work and the same stands true in the testing of any software. Doing so ensures that the actual results match up to the expectations, assures that the system is free from defects, besides subjecting other results physical properties to test as well. This is a stage that cannot be avoided at any cost.
Requirement Engineering: The initial stage of any development process has to be mandated by noting down the requirements as taught by books. Only when once all necessities are chalked out clearly further steps can then set in motion. It is the theory behind all practical in other words.
