The roles and responsibilities of a software developer are large in number and the primary responsibilities are:

• Testing modules that have been developed

Some software developers work in teams, and will develop different parts of the software individually, with other developers testing out the software to ensure that it is working correctly, and that it is able to fit into a package as a whole.

• Code development

Most software works with the use of code, and it is a primary responsibility of a software developer to write the code. This code is essential for the running of all software including computer games, web applications and business applications. The code is written and then further developed and this is also done in teams.

• Finding errors

A software developer is responsible for finding code errors, and other errors in the software. Once errors have been found, the software developer will then be responsible for correcting the errors through debugging and further code writing.

• Keeping on top of new technologies

Software developers are also responsible for keeping abreast of new technology and ensuring that it is implemented as and when it is necessary. Keeping up to date with new technologies can save businesses money in the long run, and this is a vital role of the software developer.

• Sending reports of status

Another primary responsibility of a software developer is to ensure that daily reports are provided on the progress of particular forms of software. This enables people within the organization to plan effectively, and to be able to meet deadlines.

• Updating knowledge

The constant updating of technical knowledge is vital to the role of a software developer, as by doing this he is able to ensure that the best procedures are put into place for the benefit of the company he is working for.
