Development Architecture blog is designed for developers who have some troubles in their code.
This blog will be mainly on web development, though many of it's posts can be used also on software design.
I wish you nothing but the best,
determining the feasibility of a software product, we take into account
such system elements as hardware, software, and people. Discuss some
other elements that need to be taken into account in a computer-based
Systems Essential Elements
There are six
basic components of a computer-based system. These are the hardware, software, people
used to run the system, the data that is the heart of the system and the
procedures that run the system. The final component is communication.
Hardware is the
physical component of a computer system. This includes the hard drive,
motherboard, the additional drives and the components that actually make the
system run. Software is the instructions given to a computer- based information
system that tells the hardware how to perform.
required to operate the system, create and use the software, choose how to apply
the software and physically develop the computer based system. Without people
there would be no need for a computer-based system.
Data is the reason
for the software and hardware configurations. Data can be read, understood, imputed
and retrieved by the user of the computer based system. Information that is
produced in report forms, tables and or summaries is the data lifeblood of a
computer based system. Data is not to be confused with knowledge; it is simply
Procedures in a
computer-based information system are the ways in which the tasks are
accomplished. User manuals and documentation materials make it possible for the
system to run, the data to be explored, and the reports to be produced.
the connectivity. When a computer-based information system is setup it is
designed to share data and information in one form or another. This is the
basis network of a computer based system (Blurtit, 2012).
One example of a software
computer- based system is the information structure for public health. In this
system, the main basis is data. Computer-based medical systems include the systematic
collection, analysis, consolidation plus the dissemination of data or information.
This information is given to those who have a need. Data is vital to diagnose,
and create medical and therapy plans for patients. The steps for data
collection and retrieval include case notification and detections, collection
and consolidation of patient data, investigation and confirmation. Additionally
those people who use computer-based medical systems need data to analyze,
report, provide feedback and give conclusions.
Procedures are the
instructions and policies that govern the operation of a computer-based system.
According to blurtit.com the best definition of procedures states, “Procedures
are to people what software is to hardware.” Procedures are directions on how
an end-user actually uses the system.
Procedures and processes are also
important safety management strategies used to cope with normal and abnormal situations
(Lee, 2012). Procedures are the instructions that are used to guide, monitor,
and provide operations for a computer-based system. As elementary as it may
seem, procedures must be written down and documented. These instructions should
include the simplest function of turning on the computer itself to following
software instructions to saving and closing (Blurtit, 2012).
Without all the
six integral elements of a computer based system, nothing would work. You need
hardware and software to run the hardware. People are essential to manage and
run the software and organize the hardware.Data input and retrieval is the reason to use a computer-based
system.Procedures are needed to provide
instructions to operate the hardware and software. Communications between
people is the reason for a computer-based system.
Protecting personal data can be overwhelming, but it is not impossible. There are highly secure tools both online and offline to protect personal data. Shielding personal data can be logical, highly secure as well as inexpensive. Protecting Personal Data Offline Physically lock your financial records and personal documents in a safe place in your home. Purchase an inexpensive fire-proof safe that can be stored in a secure closet, built in your floor or wall. A good fireproof safe costs from $100 to $3000 (Sears, 2013). Protect your wallet and or purse in a desk drawer at work. Limit what you carry when you go out. Never keep your social security card in your wallet; lock it up. When filling out forms in the workplace, the doctor’s office, or your child’s school ask how your information will be safeguarded. If you do not have to fill out every little detail of your life, leave that portion blank. Ask for the consequences of not providing specific information. Shr
Behavior Driven Development, Test Driven Development, and Everything Between What is TDD (Test Driven Development) Test Driven Development was introduced by Kent Beck, in 2003. This followed the concepts of Extreme Programming, introduced in 1999 with a development experiment done by both IBM and Microsoft. The purpose of the Test Driven Development is to make sure code is clear, tested, and as redundant as possible, by making sure the tests are written first, and code is being added to "fill the blanks". Every code iteration needs to pass all tests (may those be unit tests, integration tests, data integrity tests, or UI tests). Writing the tests first allow us to see what fails, how, and allow us to visualize the structure of our code, by making sure each test is performed to test a specific, extremely defined sub-section of a feature. Let's assume a "BasicMaths" class, to perform simple mathematics operations. [TestClass] public class Uni
