Technology moves fast and changes constantly. Today software plays an integral part in our daily lives and the youth couldn’t even imagine a world without it. From messaging our friends and family, managing our finances, and watching videos online, if there is something you need to do, it can most likely be done through the internet. Companies even use software to manage large projects and teams, store secure information, and learn about their customers through advanced analytical software. This trend is only going to accelerate over the next few years as more companies are realizing the benefit of using software. Creating a better experience for their customers, improving internal processes and saving costs due to a reliance on software instead of staff for certain tasks that can easily be automated.
It can be hard to figure out what software development methodology a company uses. There are four main approaches, and understanding which they use should be part of your hiring process when you’re looking for new talent or even just trying not to get left behind in this fast-paced industry!

Loops also remain open at all times as surplus work isn’t abandoned until completion but instead put towards future increments as needed. If something goes wrong along the way then there will always be someone available who knows how to fix it proactively. This is essential for software development companies if they want to delivery high quality solutions with no time delays.
