Like the book, the website is going to be updated regularly. (Because it is the source, it’s going to be the book, and not the website, which receives updates first.)
Find out more about the project on WebGlossary.info. The next batch of terms is already waiting to be added, but if you’re missing something else, spot a bug, or like to make a suggestion, please reach out in the forum. Thank you!
I’m super-happy about this release. When in 2019, I started putting together the first version of the glossary, I was curious about what was then an experiment. (I mean, a glossary!) But now, a lot of work and a few years later, knowing what unique view and value a good glossary can offer to a field like ours, with so many neighbors, I decided to dial it all up with the book—and this website. Enjoy WebGlossary.info.
I’m Jens, and I’m an engineering lead and author. I’ve worked as a technical lead for companies like Google, I’m close to W3C and WHATWG, and I write and review books for O’Reilly and Frontend Dogma. I love trying things, not only in web development, but also in other areas like philosophy. Here on meiert.com I share some of my views and experiences.
If you have a question or suggestion about what I write, please leave a comment (if available) or a message. Thank you!
