re: Common Acronyms Every Newbie in Software Engineering Should Know — Part 1 VIEW POST


I wonder if you could guess somebody's age from the acronyms they know.

There's no reason to know what FTP means anymore. It's an outdated insecure standard. Things like ssh-fs and https have replaced it.

The CLOB/LOB stuff is also highly relational DB biased. Do non-relational DBs have similar terms? That is, I'm not sure these terms are helpful to a newbie as you can build modern systems and never encounter them.

WYSIWYG seems dated now in the world of adaptive and responsive designs. What you see is never what you get anymore. I refer to things as just editors, visual editors, or source editors.
