Computer Jargon Explained is a feature in Computer Weekly publications that discusses 68 of the most commonly used technical computing terms.
The book explains what the terms mean and why the terms are important to computer professionals. The text also discusses how the terms relate to the trends and developments that are driving the information technology industry.
Computer jargon irritates non-computer people and in turn causes problems for computer people. The technology and the industry are changing so rapidly; it is very hard even for professionals to keep updated. Computer people do not have time to keep abreast of developments that do not immediately affect what they are doing. Nonetheless, they are expected to be experts: to have instant, detailed, accurate answers to every question a non-specialist may pose them. This book provides an alternative for computer professionals who need that wider perspective, a useful companion in familiarizing complicated computer jargons and technical terms.
