Webopedia is an online tech dictionary for IT professionals and educators. It provides definitions to words, phrases, and abbreviations related to computing and information technology. Webopedia’s goal is to provide easy-to-understand definitions by avoiding the use of heavy jargon when possible so that the site is accessible to everyone.
Webopedia’s editors gather information from standards bodies, leading technology companies, universities, professional online technical publications, white papers, and professionals working in the tech field. Its definitions are verified among multiple sources.
Webopedia definitions evolve and change as technology and standards change, so definitions are frequently updated to reflect trends in the field. New terms are added on a regular basis, and many of the new terms it included in the database are suggested by the site's users. In addition to a definition of the term or phrase, Webopedia also provides in-depth articles and links to sources of further information.
