Introduction : Software development have been first implemented with the first known programming system, the binary system. The technological revolution in the world helped to improve prgramming languages over the past 80 years; and today a great number of tools, electronics, and machines are controlled using software that is written by a developer using a programming language. Software development is a proffesion whose members create, maintain and update software that is used in many computers and machines today. Most software developers hold degrees in either computer science, software engineering, or computer engineering. The majority of them are employed in IT firms, entertainment studios, and several private and government owned agencies. This field of engineering is involved in the making of hundreds of tools and machines which people use in thier daily life. For example, software that is coded by developers is used in computers to run them and to respond to thier users. Modern telephone swtiching systems are programmed by developers specialized in that field. Further more, navigation systems used in cars and military and passenger airplains contain millions of lines of lines of code; which is a production of development departments and software companies. There is huge diversity in the real-life applications that involve this field of engineering, as a result, software developers are offered multipile
