ASSIGNMENT 1
Completing this assignment individually demonstrates your ability to achieve the following learning
objectives:
1.1 Explain the importance of gathering, analyzing, specifying, and validating the requirements
of the software.
1.2 Describe software development by summarizing the steps of designing, programming, and
documenting.
1.3 Recognize the importance of evaluating software functionality to determine if it meets the
requirements or to determine if it contains any defects.
1.4 Discuss the process of improving and fixing software problems after it has already been
delivered.
2.1 List and describe the most commonly used programming paradigms.
Task
Use online resources to research the core concepts of software development and the fundamentals of
modern software programming and provide your own personalized responses to the following
statements. All responses must be in your own words. This is an independent assignment to be
completed by each student on their own.

What You Will Do
Step 1: Read and Consider
Read and consider the meaning of the following statements as they relate to the core concepts of
software development and the fundamentals of modern software programming.
1. The requirements of the software are important because they determine what the software will
do and how it will do it. As a member of a development team, describe all of the steps you
would follow in order to gather, analyze, specify, and validate the requirements of a software
project.
Ensure that your response answers each of the following questions:
• What is the importance of gathering, analyzing, specifying, and validating the
requirements of the software?
• What are the steps involved in gathering, analyzing, specifying, and validating the
requirements of the software?
• Who is involved in each step and what role do they in the process?
• Why is it important to follow each step in the process?
• What can happen if one or more steps in the process are not followed?
2. Software development is a process that involves designing, programming, and documenting.
Describe what is meant by each of these three terms and explain their importance to a
successful project.
Ensure that your response answers each of the following questions:
• What is software development?
• What is designing software?
• What is programming software?
• What is documenting software?
• Why are these three things important to a successful project?
3. Describe your thoughts on why it is important to evaluate software functionality to determine if
it meets the requirements or contains any defects and describe three ways you would go about
doing this.
4. After software has been delivered, the process of improving and fixing software problems is
called software maintenance. Read one digital publication / article on the topic of improving,
fixing, or adding features to a piece of software that has already been delivered and is in use by
a customer. Briefly summarize the article and provide your own opinion regarding the content
of the article. Include a link to the article in your response.
5. List and describe the most used programming paradigms and explain their significance to
software development.
