What is a cloud screen operation and what is an activity in cloud infra ?


There are crores of people have been attending online/offline training on Cloud and DevOps globally.

But Do we know what is a screen operation ?

What is a project activity ?

What is the difference between these ?

In this below blog; I have given some elaboration on them to know the real differences. This can help the people who say they are experts on AWS Screen operations.
