The InfoWorld IQ test: Do you know your tech acronyms?
How well do you know the lingo of IT? Take this quiz and find outBy Pete Babb
Reading IT writing can be like staring at a bowl of alphabet soup: letters thrown together in all sorts of seemingly nonsensical combinations. IT's love of acronyms and abbreviations is the biggest contributor to the alphabet soup model -- it's as though every popular IT term needs to be made into an acronym. There's even an acronym for this: TLA, which means "three-letter acronym."
And sometimes we get so familiar with acronyms that we forget what they actually stand for. You may keep up with programming languages or networking protocols both old and new, but how well do you keep up with the jargon? Let InfoWorld put you to the test!
