What is Operating System: Exploring the Building Blocks of Computer Science

1. Introduction An operating system (OS) is a software program that manages the hardware and software resources of a computer system. The OS is responsible for managing the computer's memory, processing power, storage, and input/output devices. It also provides a user interface that allows users to interact with the computer and run applications. In this blog post, we'll explore the history of operating systems, the types of operating systems, the functions of operating systems, the components that make up an operating system, virtualization and containerization, security considerations, and the future of operating systems.

Mastering Software Testing Techniques: Boundary Value Analysis to State Transition

Software testing techniques refer to the different methods or approaches used to evaluate the quality of software. These techniques are used to identify defects, errors, and bugs in the software to ensure that it meets the desired quality standards. The following are some of the commonly used software testing techniques: 1.  Boundary Value Analysis (BVA) Boundary Value Analysis (BVA) is a testing technique used to identify errors around the boundaries of input values. In this method, the values at the boundaries of input parameters are tested to check if the system handles the values correctly. Let's take an example to understand this better. Suppose we have a simple calculator application that takes two integers as input and performs addition. The boundary values for this scenario would be the maximum and minimum values of integers, i.e., 2147483647 and -2147483648, respectively. Now, to test this calculator using BVA, we would first test the scenario where both input values are a
