Programming Jargon

Posted 20 July 2012 - 09:52 PM

I recently stumbled upon a blog post about programmer jargon. It was referencing a deleted StackOverflow thread about unique programming jargon.

It got me thinking, what is some jargon that Dream.In.Code uses?

Hit me!

Anyway... When I am explaining code to other people that look over my shoulder or that I am telling about my program, I normally dumb it down into stuff like pokemon terms like "run" option is typically how I explain exiting a method, the Item for things live values and such, Switch to change up the methods, the Fight as in telling the method or code what to do/run.... Not really jargon but kind of the same thing..

I'd punch you in the face if I had to work within earshot of you.

"run" means "exit a method"? Odd.

Typically the only jargon that the users should understand is: "move!".

That pretty well sums up my jargon, "Oh my fucking god, just move and let me do it."

Help Vampire : Someone that replies "Didn't work" When given a suggestion, or code example. They really just wanted it done for them.

example : nick1200

One/Two Punch Spam : When someone posts a highly technically detailed question, & it's their first (& often only) post, & it's answered with a link by another single & only post.
example <-- likely deleted & not visible

I don't think there is anything else specific to DIC.

Yeah, I was going to mention Help Vampire as well. They'll bleed you dry if you let them, by coming back over and over again saying "it didn't work, pls give me example". And you cook up a good example that showcases the concept without doing the work for them, and they come back with "i dont understand pls show me how to do the needful". And so on.

Not exactly programming jargon, but "X-ing furiously" has become a part of the local argot that I haven't come across elsewhere.

Does PEBKAC or PEBFAB count?

What about PITA?

Fill out an ID10T form?

We also have two employees that were fired after years of wondering how the hell they can keep their jobs while being so incompetent. I think our statute of limitations has run out on blaming Matt and Jared, though.

Those are extremely common, to the point where even non-tech people might recognize them. Especially PITA; that one didn't spawn in the IT world.

Almost everything else so far has been ways of communicating to someone who does not understand IT very well. To be fair, are any of us even sure of what OP really meant?
