Community glossary

Glossary of technical terms
old book

Learners have asked for a glossary of terms they are not familiar with. The team take this input seriously, and it’s a good idea: for this run of the course, we have created this step to allow people to post terms they would like to understand, and we would invite others to provide the details, and maybe other information about it.

Any unanswered terms will be answered by the mentors and education team. We hope this helps.
