# Mother of OOPS – Idli kadai Aaya

Excited to know what’s the tale behind the title?. I believe at the end of this blog justification to the title would have been done…:-) Today our story revolves around OOPS. I had OOPS in my fifth semester. It was the time when my interest towards programming was in budding stage.

So I and one of my friends had decided to join a computer center to learn C++. At that time we dint have easy online access like now. And also I wasn’t with a computer at that time. So computer center was the only option to look over for another computer. The center name was Radian I guess. I don’t know whether it is even still functional. I got a wonderful teacher in that center .Her name was Sowmya. She was the one who first taught me about classes and objects. The example she had given was like, consider the blueprint of the house as class and the object as the house itself. With the same blue print we can build ‘n’ number of houses.

See how powerful it is, I still remember that example. But when I happened to do a video about classes and objects for GUVI,I was in break to take care of my kid. So i had got most connected to kitchen rather than anything else.

So whatever video I had done at that time , carries the aroma of my kitchen 🙂 Now we’ll come to our title reason, I see our idly aaya is the founder of classes and objects. See, idly plate is the class .It defines the structure of our idly and the idlies are our objects.

So like our film directors I made justice to the title by referring idly aaya in this line 🙂

Now coming to the technical part, class is a user defined data type. Here comes the question what is data type and what is data structure?.To make people believe that I am still connected to kitchen I will give examples from my kitchen itself. For example we can consider tumbler, plates, container etc… everything is a datatype .Each serves different purpose. Small tumbler can be considered as integer, bigger tumbler as float,Jug as double .They all belong to same category and the differentiating factor is the quantity they can hold.But plate and tumbler we can compare as integer and string. Plate is for eating something and tumbler is for drinking.They serve different purpose. Now here comes the Hero intro for our story.

Picturize the vessel stand in your home.

can you tell what data type it is ,this is none other than our structure and class. To tell correctly this is object and the design of this stand is class.

We are having integer(tumbler),string(plates),byte(spoons) etc…. in the same stand. All these are analogies purpose only don’t dig too much 🙂 Ok Ok like Keladi Kanmani Radhika asking to SPB ,”moochu vidama padrenu soneenga” ,u people are asking what happened to data structure. Yes I will explain it now.

I have always found trouble in finding out some ingredients when I work in other people’s kitchen. With all containers looking alike it is difficult to identify what is inside them. Arranging the containers in a way it is easy for anyone to take anything is data structure, way of organizing data. If we keep everything in a single row then its an array.

Mom never searches for anything and knows correctly which one holds what .But if it happens that I have to do look out for something, I do a linear search to find the ingredient I need. But if I remember someway that mom usually keeps them in first row ,I can do a binary search then ignoring remaining racks. So like these examples , OOPS is there in every walk of our life. Even the way we arrange our dresses in wardrobe is a data structure. We arrange it in such a way that it will be easy for us to search and keep dresses.

See you all soon in next blog….. Before that hit the like button if you really like this post:-) or else also you can hit like ..no restrictions -Sridevi Arunprakash For more idly ideas.. 😛 Visit us at www.guvi.in

# AN ILLUSTRIOUS ACHIEVEMENT AT GUVI

People say Nature finds its own way

Yes, Nature found its way in making e-learning exciting

We have always heard news like
E-learning courses are so dang boring”
“Students are bored and dropping out”
“90% of students don’t complete the online course”
“Many don’t start the course after purchasing” and the list goes on

With GUVI’s experience, Covid19 has proved all the above statements wrong.

Though COVID19 was harsh on all of us, it has also found its own way of making the e-learning exciting for the users.

In the last 3 weeks of pandemic lockdown, GUVI has managed to extend more than 1,60,000 courses for free to the student’s community and 40% of the students have completed their course with the certification in a short span of 3 weeks. We are expecting more students to get their certification in the coming weeks.

Many of the Schools have already started to deploy a form of Education to their students by Online. It’s even expected that the Whole methodology of Education could take a major change after this Lockdown. The Central and State Governments made a statement that Lessons could also be learnt from Radio, TV which are common modes that are accessible to all sectors of people.

GUVI Team is quite excited that

• We have supported the lockdown students by Skilling them in some of the latest technologies

• Made them Job ready for the upcoming hiring season

So many happy feedbacks and thank you note from the students are pouring in.

GUVI team takes this opportunity to thank its learners and authors for making us play our part and extend our support during this pandemic phase.

Without your support this would have not been possible.

Thanks

# A Guide to Managing Remote Teams

A Remote Team refers to a group who co-ordinates and works to serve for a purpose. They tend to be geographically dispersed.

Four Things that Remote Leaders do differently:

COMMUNICATION:

How people converse with each other inside a Team, writing synchronously makes a difference between managing a team remotely when compared with managing them in-person. Successful remote managers understood this and are diligent about writing clearly, precisely – to communicate with their team on a daily basis.

•“Trust your Employees”- APPROACH

A leader should trust and believe his employees. It’s important equally to give a personal space for the employees and believe them that it won’t affect the Company results.

Get intentional about social connection:

A study shows that individuals who had 15 minutes to socialize with colleagues had a 20% increase in performance over their peers who didn’t . Furthermore, studies have shown the positive impact that social relationships have on life expectancy.

Have the hard conversations ,quickly:

Finding a way to have the hard talks as quick as possible is crucial in remote teams.

HOW TO COMMUNICATE WELL AS A REMOTE MANAGER:

How well people keep up talks within a team makes a big difference. Active respond to messages, values and vision oriented communication, delivering a hard news everything falls under this.

Write, write, write:

Sharing your experiences, strategies around marketing by writing, new product concepts is a great way of communicating with your team.

Prioritize a process:

Prioritize which mails and messages are to be checked and responded quickly. Reply quick to those that need immediate answers and allot time to check bulk messages and threaded mails.

Default to over-communication:

If you don’t say or explicitly communicate something as a remote manager, your team has absolutely no idea what you’re thinking. Thus communicating your company’s values in a remote team.

Qualities expected in a Remote Employee:

a)Empathy b)Good writing skills c)Prior work experience

Getting yourself change to a Remote Leader

*Get committed to the work you do. Don’t perform your job for namesake.

*Communicate more and gather information as much as possible.

*Schedule a good training and On-boarding experience for Junior Employees.

*Focus on building trust with the team.

*Be ready to adjust and adapt to the situation in the team

*Coach and guide your team on times of avoiding pitfalls

*Be transparent and proactive in your approach

Getting into good books of the Manager and coordinating well within teams are mandatory. Be it a team within an Organization or handling Nuclear teams , it is important to have a good communication and trust worthiness within the Teams. Managing Remote teams thus becomes a hectic schedule if not correctly managed but a smooth handling issue if properly handled.

# How to write a good test case in Software Testing

Software Testing is a process of executing the application with the intent of finding the software bugs to ensure that the product is defect free in order to produce the quality product. It is used to evaluate the functionality of a software application to find whether the developed software meets the specified requirements or not.

The main purpose of a Test case is to ensure if different features within an application are working as expected. It helps tester to validate if the software is free of defects and if it is working as per the expectations of the end users.

While writing Good and effective Test Cases, certain steps are to be followed.

1. Identifying the Scope And Purpose Of Testing
Before writing effective test cases we need to identify the testable requirements. We need to understand the purpose of testing and must understand the features and user requirements.

2. Defining how To perform Testing Activities
Defining the effect test scenarios and a better understanding of functional requirements of an application is mandatory. We must know about what all operations can be used, so that the test scenarios, test cases can be written based on the guidelines.

3. Identify Non-Functional Requirements.
Along with the functional requirements, the non-functional requirements are equally important. Basically in non-functional requirements criterion like Operating system, hardware requirements, security features are to be considered and also additional prerequisites required for testing like test data preparation.

4.Implement Testing Techniques – Positive And Negative Test Cases
While writing test cases few test case design methods should be used like equivalence classes portioning, boundary value analysis, normal and abnormal conditions. It should also consider negative testing, failure conditions and error handling which could help to discover most probable defects in the code.

It is essential that testcases both valid and Invalid testcases are to be checked before releasing software Project to the End User.
