Decoding Code

Are you ever in a meeting where people throw around terms like front-end, back-end, Bootstrap, git, JavaScript, agile, XML, PHP, Python, Wordpress, and Drupal, but you are not sure what they mean in the library context (even after you looked the terms up on your phone covertly under the table)? Not sure how or what to ask your colleagues to get a sense of what they are talking about? LITA’s Library Code Year Interest Group wants to help you out by having a discussion about what all these terms mean. Bring any terms that you hear a lot, but don’t completely understand, to the meeting and we will go over what each term means, what makes it different from everything else out there, and how it fits in with library technology. If you don’t want to admit that you don’t know a term (or just want to give us some advance warning), you can submit it anonymously before the meeting. We will go over what each term means, what makes it different from everything else out there, and how it fits in with library technology. Please join us for this informal and lively discussion about decoding technology jargon. We will have librarians from all levels of comfort with library technology.
