Glossary

Generally glossaries go in the back of a book so that you only have to look up definitions to words you don’t know. However, I’ve already used words that I think need some explanation. It’s not that I think you haven’t heard “scalable,” but people use that word for several different meanings. This mini-glossary will help you talk the talk, and it can help you understand me. I’m just trying to relay information in this book, and the more you understand my terms the better. Plus, I can poke fun at a few catchphrases.
