Title: From Source to Software


1
From Source to Software
  • Narrowing the gap between you and the Industry

Presented by Shilp Gupta ABV-IIITM, Gwalior
2
But First
  • Let us grab a statistic
  • How many of you have Computer Science as a
    Subject?
  • Does IT interest you?
  • Would you do it make a living?
  • Software Engineering offers the most lucrative
    placements in the form of bulk as well as
    compensation!

3
Coding
  • Coding, the line-by-line development of precise
    instructions for the machine to execute, is and
    will always be the core activity of software
    development.
  • Its called Software Penmanship
  • Those who can Code!

4
Back to the School Part 1
  • CS Myths
  • Programming is tough
  • BASIC QBASIC or GWBASIC
  • C Turbo C
  • Java Sun One/Blue J
  • All are myths nevertheless
  • It is up to your college education to teach you
    to program Right?

5
Back to the School Part X
  • Computer programming is tremendous fun. Like
    music, it is a skill that derives from an unknown
    blend of innate talent and constant practice.
  • Like drawing, it can be shaped to a variety of
    ends commercial, artistic, and pure
    entertainment.
  • Truth is, students your age are already well
    known programmers!

6
For those who shall Program
  • Code IT
  • Compile IT
  • Link IT
  • Deploy IT
  • IT is what we call an Algorithm, a Heuristic or
    plain Logic.
  • Everything is a Program

7
My name Is Neo!
  • The industry calls them software everybodys
    heard of software we say we build software
    what is it that makes a program, Software?
  • When a program does 500 functions simultaneously,
    it is called a software
  • When a program is 100000 lines of code, it is
    called a software

8
Enter the Matrix
  • Write a software to manage all tasks in your
    school
  • Build a website to make the schools presence
    felt on the net
  • Windows is 4 million lines of code written in
    C/C
  • Try writing a software with source-code spread
    across 5 files, now, imagine 50 people doing this
    collaboratively

9
Coupling and Cohesion
  • Cohesion defines the completeness of the task
    that a program has to perform
  • Coupling defines the amount of inter-related all
    programs in your software are
  • The paradigm is shifting from high cohesion, low
    coupling software to low cohesion, high coupling
    systems

10
OOPS!! The fact in the fad
  • Object Oriented Programming may sound like the
    biggest fad to young enthusiasts in programming
  • But,
  • IT has brought down software costs
  • IT has brought down software construction costs
  • IT has made vast amount of software tractable

11
Software Engineering
12
IT is rising
  • Factors,
  • Computers are becoming cheap
  • Software costs are sliding
  • The plethora of knowledge available to be learned
    is humongous
  • We are Knowledge workers in the Knowledge economy
  • Information Technology is here to stay

13
Software Industry
  • Programmer/Developer
  • Teams
  • Designer
  • Project
  • Company
  • Industry

14
Shock and Awe
  • Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games
    have millions of people world wide engaged
    simultaneously
  • Prices of software range from a few hundreds to
    hundreds of crores
  • But, isnt it all supposedly Fun?

15
The Cathedral and The Bazaar
  • Now,
  • Would you be a computer programmer?
  • Would you rather be a software architect?
  • Would you do this for free?
  • A software is neither a product, nor a service,
    it is a bundle of knowledge

16
Thank You
  • Remember,
  • Writing code remains the single most productive
    activity in software development
  • The world of computer software is constantly
    changing, in trends of technology, in idioms and
    methodologies
  • Coming years will teach you great many things,
    but the learning starts now
