This module defines the Software Development Life Cycle and briefly discusses the various processes, from collecting requirements to maintaining the software. It later continues with helping you understand planning, designing, constructing, testing and maintenance. 

What is Testing?

Testing is a significant phase in software development. This module gives you a brief overview of the testing phase and its types.

Why do We Need Testing?

The necessity to test the software before it is deployed goes beyond just cost margins. In this module, you will understand why software testing is performed and be able to verify all the reasons while developing software. 


This section will tell you about the famous waterfall, spiral, and V-models. At the end of this module, you can decide what model to use for your project depending on the requirements and the design. 

Strategic Approach

This section briefly explains different strategies used in different phases of SDLC. You will understand where and why system testing, validation, integration, and unit testing methods are used.
