Software Professional Standards

  • You need to show that you are aware of the standards which influence your project
  • This can be
    • The difference between different software (PHP vs Java)
    • The difference between different software (releases) versions (PHP4 vs PHP5)
  • The best way of increasing your grade is by comparing and contrasting these, resulting in justifying why you are using the programming language and the selected version.
  • Professional standards ensure:
    • Computer hardware is compatible with other hardware and the operating system
    • Computer software is compatible with the operating system and hardware components of the system
    • Improve the quality of the hardware and software (reduced likelihood of system crashes)
  • All key software and hardware have standards
    • USB 1, 2 and 3
    • Wifi protocols
    • Web Standards (WC3) – accessibility and readability
    • Human Computer Interface Standards
    • Android Coding Standards
