Technology can be esoteric and confusing. Like many technical professions ours is filled with acronyms and highly specialized language. In the best case this allows us to communicate complex ideas very efficiently, but it can also isolate us when our jargon is simply unintelligible gibberish.
We’ve decided to collect a glossary of concepts and terms that we reference regularly in our work. We’re publishing the definitions here, along with links to blog posts we’ve written, people who know more about the subject, and any resources we have available.
We hope to make our work more approachable by ensuring our terms are clear.
