Merger proposal[edit]

The two pages Software development methodology and Software development process appear to cover almost the same topic. Since the former is (IMHO) the better article, I suggest a merge to that article.

Is it software development process or methods of software development[edit]

The page heading and the content do not correlate with each other properly. The software development process includes planning, requirement gathering, prototyping, designing, development, testing, documentation, deployment and maintenance. However, the page details about type of software development methods. Author needs to review heading of page. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 182.72.49.82 (talk) 10:04, 17 September 2015 (UTC)

Expert request[edit]

I'm making some changes, and going to remove this notice at the same time.

Mixing software development processes (which this article should be about) with programming paradigms and tools, which could be a subsection, but should not be listed as emerging examples in the history of software development processes. Mixing specific methodologies or family of software methodologies or processes (like Agile) and a general characteristic of software methodologies (incremental, iterative, sequential, etc), e.g., Agile family of methods are iterative and incremental. The following sections must be structured better: maybe it could be split indeed in specific software methodologies (or family of methodologies) and characteristics (or approaches, which is also not the best title for this subsection, which should be called 'examples' or 'specific software development processes') common to software methodologies. Is this a software development process, so that it deserves to be even mentioned in this article?.

Structuring code v. structuring teams[edit]

Structured programming, for example, is a way of structuring software code. Scrum (software development) is a way of structuring an organization of software developers. I believe this article is about both, but it should explain which are which. Power~enwiki (talk) 03:10, 13 July 2017 (UTC)
