Software development programmers are often thought of as sitting in a dark and lonely room and coding until well past midnight. There is more to them than this caricature. Here are some more misconceptions about software developers and what they do.
1. Developers only write code and don't do anything elsde
More often than not, software developers also act as analysts and testers. Even if the company has dedicated departments for these aspects, it is a part of the development process to routinely analyze and test projects while they are being built.
Developers are also involved in meetings and keeping track of what needs to be done.
2. Developers do not need people skills
Although there are people in this field that enjoy keeping to themselves and dislike working with people, this can become a big disadvantage when working on a project. Because a project involves multiple parties, it it very beneficial when a developer is skilled in the technical side of this but who can communicate their ideas and understand the needs of people they speak to.
3. As long as the team follows the plan, nothing will go wrong
Because of the complexity of software development projects, the processes need flexibility. Planning is necessary, but requirements can change and new issues can arise that need to be solved.
Development is not necessarily linear or predictable, but rather a piece-by-piece process. It is important to keep this in mind while planning, and to provide for potential problems since it is very rare that no problems will arise through the duration of the project.
4. The release of the product is the end of the project
Software products always have things that occur after release such as security updates, bug fixes and maintenance repair. Even after extensive testing, there will almost always be something that goes wrong. This is why software development is often a never-ending process.
5. All IT problems will be solved by AI
Although AI operations (AIOps) are being talked about as development of the future, a report indicated that only 10% of respondents are considering AIOps at the moment.
AI is still just code that does what someone has told it to do.
