Software development has often been stereotyped as an overly technical profession or an industry filled with people who are obsessed with data and numbers with no room for any creative expression.
While the more tangible aspects of the job do revolve around technical knowledge, there is plenty of space for other considerations. We were able to prove through one of our more recent projects wherein we develop custom Blockchain Application and IT Consulting for a Cryptocurrency company:
Today, we’ll be talking about the process of balancing art, science, and business in software development in general.
Software Interacts With Humans
One of the things that separate run-of-the-mill developers from being considered one the best companies worldwide is their understanding of the industry itself. Software developers aren’t making a static platform. It’s a destination that interacts with people.
A successful piece of software has to appeal to people at different levels. This is where a lot of the artistic considerations come in. There are visuals, assets, images, and colors to think about, not to mention how everything is arranged.
Whenever a developer sits down to do their work, they always need to be mindful of how it will be appreciated by users. But that’s just one section of people that needs to be happy with the project.
Software Interacts with Bosses
The only two reasons that any company will want to have any kind of software is that it either makes their jobs easier or makes them money. This isn’t a problem most of the time, but certain clients are hyperfocused on these two things and get impatient with any deviation from those goals.
This gets frustrating when certain elements that will surely improve the project are denied because it doesn’t help the bottom line. These are outlying cases, of course, as most business owners understand the need for such things. However, developers will need to be aware that these partners do exist.
Software Interacts with Everything
Software development is an intricate balancing act between all these different parties with their sometimes conflicting needs. Developers need to seriously consider every facet of their project before it can be regarded as a success.
