Good technical terms glossaries / dictionaries

If you're trying to recruit technically-savvy candidates, knowing some of the jargon will help you evaluate what's on their resumes.

  • Acronym Finder - definitions for thousands of acronyms, both common and obscure, and searchable
  • FOLDOC, short for the Free On-Line Dictionary of Computing, is a searchable dictionary of acronyms, jargon, programming languages, tools, architecture, operating systems, networking, theory, conventions, standards, mathematics, telecoms, electronics, institutions, companies, projects, products, history, and anything else to do with computing.
  • Barkley's OASIS Comprehensive Technology Glossary
  • NetDictionary is a production of Albion.com
  • OneLook might be the biggest of all: it's a general word dictionary with over 2.5 million words, comprised of 632 multiple specialty dictionaries (including some of the other sites here). It searches them all simultaneously, so you often get a few relevant definitions.
  • TechEncyclopedia from technical trade magazine publishing giant, CMP, has over 14,000 computer terms and concepts defined.
  • Webopedia from Internet.com, a/k/a PCwebopedia.com and ZDwebopedia.com (the ZDNet interface on the latter makes it look like a different dictionary, but it's the same) is quite extensive, focusing on Internet terminology.
  • WhatIs has definitions for 2,000+ terms and provides 12,000+ cross-referenced links to more information.
  • Wikipedia - last but not least, this has become one of the largest of all online reference encyclopedias with about 5 million articles (in English; other language editions exist)
