All software projects have a lifecycle, like most things. It begins with the creation. Unlike real life, software projects must have a meaning. Most of the time that is to either solve a problem or accomplish a task.

It has several steps:

1- Purpose or Problem: Plan or define what needs to be accomplished.

2- Analysis: Can it be done? How?

3-Planning: defining the top priorities as well as the time it would take.

4- Requirement Analysis: A fancy way of saying what behaviors will the app have to accomplish its objective.

5-Development: Begin doing the code and looking that it runs!

6- Testing: Does it run well on standard workflows only? Or does it also take into account non-standard workflows as well?

7- Integration: Now it runs and does what it is supposed to.

8- Maintenance: Need to take into account future changes, as well as any extra steps that need to be done after it is up and running to ensure it stays that way.
