I'll API you over a good singleton for that rant.
Hazarth41207dI agree and I don't think It's gatekeeping. What would it even gatekeep? The english language? People should use words correctly not just within tech but in all aspects of life. Otherwise we might as well throw all vocal communication attempts out and just communicate using cave wall paintings again...
I feel you, but I slightly disagree. What are layman's words? Think of the "non-technical person" as someone talking to a goldsmith or a plumber trying to communicate their wishes without knowing the technical terms, but trying to get as close and precise as they can.
Don't they look things up?
A lot of the time I search for terms and phrases I already understand *just* because I have not done it before. Maybe there's more meanings to it than the one I know, or maybe my understanding is incorrrect.
If you've got one of those fucking phones that should've never been invented and take it with you everywhere you go, then there's no reason for you NOT to look for a word outside your vocabulary to double check your usage makes sense.
Oh right, what am I saying? Phones are for bloat and spyware, not learning about shit.
irene34676dI speak English. I hate it when someone tries to use a new noun that they aren’t completely familiar with. Go read a feckin manual or a dictionary then come back when you speak English. There is no leeway for learning around me and making mistakes buster.
Root786716dAccording to sales, everything is a database or an integration.
glemiere421dReminds me of non-technical people in France who are raging when you use English words as your technical lexical field.
Like yeah, we're 1% of programmers on the planet, and we decided to all discuss our issues in our own language to obviously make it a lot easier to access information.
GET FUCKING LOST. 😂
