Industry Af Dictionary

Hello one, hello all. My apologies for not posting in a while. I’m starting up the spree again, and you can expect lots more content, both in-depth, and easy to digest.
Here’s an example of a quick bite: The Industry Af Dictionary. Basically, people in the industry use weird lingo. I’ll be creating and updating a list of all the stupid lingo we use so you can keep up to speed. Some of the definitions are 100% true, some of the definitions are what people “actually mean” when they say it.
