  • F

    feature flagging

    Feature flagging is a cost-effective and simple programming method that involves a programming design pattern which allows developers to turn a feature of a software application on or off without having to release or change the code in production.

  • foo (in software programming)

    Foo is a term used by developers as a placeholder when describing an idea or concept.

  • forward compatible

  • GraphQL

    GraphQL is a query language that describes how a client should request information through an application programming interface (API). In a broad sense, GraphQL is a syntax that developers can use to ask for specific data and return that data from multiple sources. Once the client defines the structure of the data needed, the exact same structure of data is returned from the server.

  • gRPC

  • I

    IDEF (Integrated Definition)

  • interoperability

    Interoperability (pronounced IHN-tuhr-AHP-uhr-uh-BIHL-ih-tee) is the ability of different systems, devices, applications or products to connect and communicate in a coordinated way, without effort from the end user.

  • Istio

    Istio is an independent, open source service mesh technology that enables developers to connect, secure, control, observe and run a distributed microservice architecture (MSA), regardless of platform, source or vendor.

  • J

    Jenkins X

    Jenkins X is an open source system that provides continuous integration (CI), continuous delivery (CD) and automated testing tools designed for cloud-native applications in a Kubernetes environment.

  • K
