What is an Interface?

Find out all about interfaces.


An interface is essentially a border point where two or more components of a computing system meet and interact by sharing data and others.

Interfaces are also used around user experience design, and how that design has been built to make the system’s interface easy to use. This comes a user interface (UI).

UI is indeed the place, such as a desktop, where a user interacts with a computing system, for example, and operating system.
