• File Transfer Protocol (FTP)

    FTP is a protocol for transferring files over TCP/IP networks such as the Internet.

    To transfer files, you need to connect to an FTP server with some FTP client software.

    FTP can be used to transfer very large files, especially files that are too large to be sent via email. However, the need for a server to exchange files with someone else makes this less practical than email.

    FTP is also commonly used to upload web pages and web applications to web sites. Most web servers also feature an FTP server.

    Some commonly use FTP clients are:

    • Windows: FileZilla
    • Mac: CyberDuck, Transmit
    • Unix: ftp command
  • Dots Per Inch (DPI)

    Measurement of resolution that is used for scanning and printing. Generally, higher DPI results in a higher resolution, more visible detail in the image, and a larger file size.

  • Lightweight Directory Acess Protocol (LDAP)

    Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) is an networking protocol for querying and modifying directory services running over TCP/IP.

    Is is often use to verify a login/username against a central directory to allow/reject login and then maybe obtain more detailed information on the user (firstname, lastname, etc.)

  • IEEE

  • Call To Action (CTA)

    The CTA is the primary usier interface element (button, link, form...) that asks the user to take the action the website would like its visitors to take. This results in a "Conversion".

    Examples: "Buy now" button, "Sign up", "Download now", "Subscribe here"...

  • Coverage

    Term used for a toner usage measurement on laser printing. For example, 5% coverage means that an A4 sided paper has about 5% image or text on it. So, if the paper or original has complicated images or lots of text on it, the coverage will be higher and at the same time, a
    toner usage will be as much as the coverage.

  • Dreamweaver

    Adobe Dreamweaver is a popular HTML editor used to create websites.

  • Automatic Document Feeder (ADF)

    An Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) is a mechanism that will automatically feed an original sheet of paper so that a printer can scan some amount of the paper at once.
