Programming is a learnable skill.You can learn the basics of a language, understand different patterns of building software, acquire the knowledge of useful algorithms.Programming is solving a well-defined problem. Software development is defining the problem in the first place. Once you have a question, it is usually easy to solve it once you have the tools and the knowledge to use them. If you don’t know the question, things become a lot harder.It is about understanding your customer, sometimes talking to them and sometimes not knowing them and only understanding them through observation. It is also about working with multiple people to build a coherent quality system. It happens in the real world where things can go wrong and frequently do. I don’t need to elaborate because you know what I am talking about. It is far easier for a single programmer to pick a problem and solve it than for a huge team to define the problem and set about to find a solution to it.

Here’s a little bit of knowledge about software programming. A machine code or a machine language is the first generation of codes that were used to program a computer. It is a series of 0s and 1s where it is electronically translated as instructions by the computer controllers. This is the only language that the computer understands.

After that, it was assembly language that became the second generation of code. If you were a technician or a programmer I’m sure you will experience how to use it and literally apply it on devices. I had my own experience on writing a program using assembly language that will literally control devices like lighting up LEDs, starting and stopping a small motor, and more.

Assembly language converts the series of 0s and 1s into human words like for example “add”. It is translated back into machine language by programs that are referred to as assemblers. Software development, on the other hand, is known in many different names like application development, designing software, software design, software application development, platform development, and or enterprise application development.

Generally, it is the development or progress of a software product. This term may be referred to the activity of computer programming which in turn is the process of writing and keeping the source code. A software is developed for a variety of reasons. One is to meet the particular requirements of a particular client or business.
