Buzzwords and staying up to date

Web technology is a very broad field and you cannot be an expert in all aspects.

However, it is useful to have at least heard of a few common terms and buzzwords, so that you don't seem uninformed when when talking to a client or other developers.

Get an overview

Search the Internet for each of the following terms. Only take a couple of minutes for each and don't get into too much detail, but do get a rough understand what each of these terms mean:

  • Single Page Application
  • Software as a Service
  • React
  • node.js
  • NoSQL
  • GraphQL
  • ElasticSearch
  • AWS and EC2
  • CDN, Akamai, Cloudfront
  • Web Components
  • Polymer
  • Polyfill
  • Flexbox
  • Bootstrap
  • Progressive Web Application
  • Service Worker
  • oAuth
  • Redis
  • Docker
  • Elixir / Phoenix
  • PhoneGap (-> now Apache Cordova)
  • A/B testing
