Hello, fellow hackers! I've been lurking for a few months, and am really excited to share my first project with you.
Hackterms is a crowdsourced dictionary of coding terms. While learning to code, I'd often fall down a rabbit hole of research for things I didn't really need. There are lots of resources that teach you how to do something, but few explain when and why. So, I built Hackterms to answer these questions:
- at a high level, what does this tool/process/concept do? When is it used? What are the alternatives?
- Is this worth my time to learn now?
Let me know what you think and whether this would be useful to you!
