An overview to the history of software development

History of software development 1965 85 Early 1980s Software Crisis Era 1945-65 Cost of Owning and Making software was Unexpectedly High Late 1980s The Origin of Technology Pioneering Era The NATO Science Committee sponsored 2 back to back conferences > Considered as start of the profession. Software Engineering had already emerged as a bonafide profession with languages such as FORTRAN, COBOL and ALGOL developed. No silver bullets 2000-14 1990s Solving the software crisis was paramount to researchers and companles producing software tools. Late 1990s The growth of browser usage, running on the HTML language, changed the way in which information-display and retrieval was organized. The widespread network connections led to the growth and prevention of international computer viruses on MS Windows computers, and the vast proliferation of spam e-mail became a major design issue in e-mail systems, flooding communication channels and requiring semi-automated pre-screening. Lighlweight Meihodologies PROminance Of Ihe internet The use of rapid-prototyping evolved to entire lightweight methodologies, such as Extreme Programming (XP), which attempted to simplify many areas of software engineering, including requirements gathering and reliability testing for the growing, vast number of small software systems. The rise of the Internet led to very rapid growth in the demand for international information display/e- mail systems on the World Wide Web. The growth of browser usage, The growth of prevention measures for computer viruses. A golden era for Software Development. Aspect Agile Model Driven Experimental Dealing with quality attributes to provide boilerplate code from many areas in source code. Agile software development guides software development projects that evolve rapidly with changing expectations and competitive markets. Devising experiments on software, in collecting data from the experiments, and in devising laws and theories from this data. Textual and graphical models as primary design artifacts Published online by - [email protected]
