The Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) is a process used by software development teams to plan, design, build, test, and deliver software.

The SDLC typically includes the following phases:

Requirements gathering and analysis: Gathering and analyzing the requirements for the software to be developed.

Design: Designing the software architecture and user interface.

Implementation: Writing the code for the software.

Testing: Testing the software to ensure it meets the requirements and is free of bugs.

Deployment: Deploying the software to production.

Maintenance: Providing ongoing support and maintenance for the software.

Different organizations and teams may use different variants of SDLCs, such as Agile, Scrum, Waterfall, etc.
