Another set of terms to memorize? Good thing this article will stay here just in case I forgot some. Since there are also some terms that I forgot in the previous article.

This is like a glossary. Atleast we’ll be familiar of the terms that will be usually used.

Right, we can keep coming back here if we forget something.

This one is new! Better familiarize myself with the terms. I am seeing different context now and this gives me an idea on what to expect next. Looking forward!

Finally another article to dig into. I love how each and every term is defined. And it’s great that we can revisit the articles in case we forget about something :fire:

Thanks to this team. This will help us understand such terminologies we may encounter in the project.
