Software Is All About Developing
The software business is a service industry that involves human thinking almost exclusively. This contrasts with computer hardware or any other industry that makes equipment, whereby manufacturing is a major part of the business.
The only physical manufacturing in software, which applies mostly to larger companies, is the retail package for store shelves. Containing a CD or DVD with limited instructions (the documentation is on the disc), such boxed software can cost as little as a couple dollars, and today practically nothing, because distribution is mostly online. Royalties may be applicable; for example, Apple's App Store and Google Play keep 30% of the revenues from mobile apps sold through their online stores. See software publisher, software engineer, programmer and systems programmer.
