How to build a software application that will be loved by millions-billions of people?
Building a software application is not a big deal. If you have a little bit of knowledge of computer science and you are comfortable with application development level coding then you will be able to build a software application.
If you are planning to build an application that will be scalable.
If you are planning to build an application that will be reliable.
Having a little bit of knowledge will not be able to help you in building these types of applications. Because at the end of the day you will definitely want your built application should be loved by millions of people.
Let’s understand, what ingredient it takes to build an application that will be loved by millions of people.
Basically, There are three types of software applications.
Mobile Application: Run on mobile-based operating systems(Android, IOS)
Web Application: Browser-based software application(Chrome, Safari, Mozilla, etc).
System Application: Run on Desktop, Laptop based operating systems(Windows, Linux, Mac, Chrome).
Before we continue to the next step, you have to decide which type of software application you are planning to build.
For this story, I am taking a Mobile application as an example. But, Don’t worry if you belong to another type of application. Because whatever I am going to explain will work the same for all types of applications you will build.
Let’s continue, Next, you will need knowledge of software engineering.
When you will start exploring software engineering then there you will be able to find all amazing required tools and techniques for building a software application.
Here, I am going to explain some of the tools and techniques that you will need to build a basic software application.
Requirement Gathering knowledge
Understanding of Design like Wireframing, User flow diagram, Concept map, user interface designing.
Understanding of how a software application work.
Understanding of networking.
Understanding of Design Pattern.
Understanding of Memory Optimization.
Understanding of testing(Unit, Integrated, and system) + Automated/Manual testing.
Exploring these will allow you to build a software application that will be loved by millions of people.
