Common Programming Acronyms

1K Blog Marathon: Day 29

Every day, many people are choosing their OOTD, so they can keep up with the trends and not be OP. It’s NBD, just to be the first in the hype BAE, and they will tell you that YOLO, share it in FB, IG and other SM. Just DM them, but don’t send NSFW, IMHO. So as not to be a subject of LOLs and if you have a FOMO, you need to look FTW. KK?

These are the millennial acronyms that even I, despite being a member of the Millennial group (roughly 1980 to 1994), can’t even understand many of these. That’s what you get when you read more books than scroll your phone. ^_^

But in IT, well, Information Technology, there are so many acronyms that you may encounter. It’s not necessary to memorize them all, just get the tip of the iceberg – if you want.

Here are some of them, and in coming days I will try to update this list. Let’s start!
