Sergey Brin (born August 21, 1973) is a Soviet-born American computer scientist best known as the co-founder of Google, Inc. , the world’s largest Internet company, based on its search engine and online advertising technology. Brin immigrated to the United States at the age of six. Earning his undergraduate degree at the University of Maryland, he followed in his father's and grandfather's footsteps by studying mathematics, double-majoring in computer science.
Software design is a process of problem-solving and planning for a software solution. After the purpose and specifications of software are determined, software developers will design or employ designers to develop a plan for a solution. It includes low-level component and algorithm implementation issues as well as the architectural view.
Software development is the act of working to produce/create software. This software could be produced for a variety of purposes - the three most common purposes are to meet specific needs of a specific client/business, to meet a perceived need of some set of potential users (the case with commercial and open source software), or for personal use (e.g. a scientist may write software to automate a mundane task).
In software engineering, a project fork happens when developers take a legal copy of source code from one software package and start independent development on it, creating a distinct piece of software. Free and open source software is that which, by definition, may be forked from the original development team without prior permission without violating any copyright law. However, licensed forks of proprietary software also happen.
Development environment may refer to Integrated development environment. In hosted software (eg web site/application, database not shrinkwrap software) development, Development environment refers to a server tier designated to a specific stage in a release process. Development, staging, and production is a common arrangement of tiers. A more comprehensive list of tiers:
In computer science and software engineering, reusability is the likelihood a segment of source code that can be used again to add new functionalities with slight or no modification. Reusable modules and classes reduce implementation time, increase the likelihood that prior testing and use has eliminated bugs and localizes code modifications when a change in implementation is required. Subroutines or functions are the simplest form of reuse.
A software development methodology or system development methodology in software engineering is a framework that is used to structure, plan, and control the process of developing an information system.
Code Complete is a software development book, written by Steve McConnell and published by Microsoft Press, urging developers to get past code and fix programming and the "big design up front" waterfall model. It is also a compendium of software construction techniques, from naming variables to deciding when to write a subroutine. The book won a Jolt award in 1993.
Brian Waites (born 1 March 1940) is an English professional golfer. Waites turned professional in 1957 and played on the European Tour through most of the 1970s and 1980s. He was in his prime between 1978 and 1984, ranking between 10th and 22nd on the Order of Merit in each of those seven years. He won two European Tour events. Waites was a member of the losing 1983 European Ryder Cup team and represented England three times at the World Cup.
