The software development industry has grown in the space of a century from an almost non – existent industry to one that is not only a billion dollar industry but an indispensable one , especially as software form the basis of modern gadgets & devices.

The software development industry has room for growth as there is considerable demand in the industry with more businesses adopting software programs that will allow for improved efficiency and lower operating costs; this was so as to look for ways to not be affected by the economic downturn.

Software itself is the set of instructions or programs that tell a computer what to do. There are the following types:

System software – provide core functions such as operating systems, utilities, disk management, hardware management and other operational necessities.

Programming software – give programmers tools such as text editors, computers, linker, debuggers, and other tools to create code.

Application software – (applications or apps) – to help users perform tasks. Office productivity suites, data management software, media players and security programs are examples.

Embedded software – Embedded systems software is used to control machines and devices not typically considered computers – telecommunication networks, cars, industrial robots and more are examples.

A software development company is where software is not only developed but distributed for different purposes such as instructional, calculation, entertainment, and assessment purposes. Before one can start a software development company, there are basic things that one needs such as knowledge of programming, technical support skills, the necessary experience of managing a company and some funds.
