A - Z

CLI:
  (Command Line Interface) Such an interface is often used in command prompts and this type of interface uses Input and Output to run code in realtime as you type commands. It is often used to facilitate communications between you and your computer system, but can also be used to create secure shells to connect to networks directly.
CSS:
(Cascading Style Sheet) Developed by Håkon Wium Lie, a language he used to implement in order to distinguish a documents purpose. He created the language to largely be implemented on any markup language not specifically HTML. Primarily used for the styling of web documents to improve readability and appeal to users.
FTP:
(File Transfer Protocol) A protocol used for simple file transferring between a client and server. The connection normally happens across a port number (typically 21). The port is typically associated with an IP Address and type of protocol.
GUI:
  (Graphical User Interface) Used as an alternative to PTUIs (Plain Text User Interfaces), a GUI is an interface that allows the client to interact and give input in ways of interaction with various medias.
HCI:
  (Human Computer Interaction) It is a subject that many computer scientists focus on today. Specifically talks about the interaction between people and computers. Early in history only scientists and data analysts needed to use computers but as the personal computer got developed they had to account for the average person and had to implement design techniques that would make computers more usable for the public.
HTML:
(HyperText Markup Language) Standard Markup Language for creating websites. Tim Berners-Lee created it strongly after the widely accepted markup language at the time SGML. The main difference was the anchor element ‘a’ which Lee implemented for his use of connectivity and the creation of his ‘web’.
HTTP:
(HyperText Transfer Protocol) The protocol specifically used to exchange and transfer hypertext. This is the specific protocol created my Tim Berners-Lee to implement the idea of connectivity that he wanted. In the end they were able to get a hypertext document by initiating the command “GET” in a terminal. An application layer protocol that is designed within the Internet Protocol.
Hypertext:
  A concept developed by Tim Berners-Lee which would allow for fluid media data sharing. It is the idea of data linkage which allows images and text to be displayed when we access certain URLs often manifested using HTML (Hypertext Markup Language).
Internet:
  The connection of various computer networks implementing TCP/IP protocols.
Multimedia:
  It is a type of media that consists of other medias. A website is often described as multimedia as it can contain: gifs , images, videos, text, and even music.
SSH:
(Secure Shell) A protocol that allows you to operate on your network over an unsecure network. This is often used for remote connecting to servers. Normal use includes a command line interface where you type the command “ssh” and then your ssh username and wait to be prompt for password.
Telnet:
A Transmission Control Protocol created for the interfacing and communication of terminal devices. Telnet is historically used similarly to SSH, but it lacks the security that SSH provides.
World Wide Web:
  The actual web of interlinkage produced by various URLs and Hypertext sources linked together. The internet is used to access websites across the web using the URLs. (Uniform Resource Locators).
