Building Software versus Building a House Building software and building a house have many similarities as well as differences. There are four aspects that I found in which there are some similarities and differences. These aspects are planning, materials, design, and schedules. There are many more aspects that can be used as well as what the aspects have.
Similarities
In order to better understand the similarities and differences between software architecture and building architecture one needs to know what software is. According to "Software Engineering Institute" (2015), "The software architecture of a program or computing system is a depiction of the system that aids in the understanding of how the system will behave” (para. What is Software Architecture). The first aspect that I will be talking about is planning. In the planning aspect I found that in both software and building architecture need to have a blueprint. Without a blue print there is no way that one can build any building or home. In software architecture one needs to have a blueprint in order to base what the user wants within the program. The next aspect that I found were similar in software and building architecture is the materials. Although in software architecture one has different types of materials than in building architecture, one still needs to have materials. The materials used for software architecture are for example the program that will be used to make the program and in building architecture the materials that are used are, for example, cement, wood, electrical wiring, pipes, etc. The foundation on both of these is important because it is the base in which the structures will be built on.
Differences
The same way that there are similarities in the aspects there are differences as well. The next aspect that I will be talking about is the design.
