As a newbie in development, I like to do a post on random things I learned during the conference. These often end up being CS terms, nerd culture related, or other interesting items that didn’t quite fit/make sense in a session post. Here are those from this conference.
Orthogonal: not a computer term, it just means adjacent.
Grok: means to really really understand something. It’s actually coined from a book about an alien and it’s understanding of humans. Check out the link to the book here.
D3 is a drawing library mostly used for graph’s or charts
Donut charts are pie charts with a hole in the middle
CLI is a command line interface and it is how you interact with the app on the command line. (A perfect example of things I’ve been doing but didn’t actually know the name for)
This is a great background blog post that a few sessions referred to: http://emberjs.com/blog/2013/12/17/whats-coming-in-ember-in-2014.html
