When I started working as a Junior UX Designer, I was a fish out of water. My knowledge about technology was limited. In meetings I would keep hearing these words, but had no clue what they meant. I’d get back to my desk and google what I’d heard, hoping no one would spot me!

Overtime, I found there were lots of people new in tech having the same issues. I decided to compile an A-Z list of tech words with explanations in plain English.
