Ever wondered what all those programming and computer-assisted reporting terms mean? What is R and why you would want to use it? What is the difference between Ruby, Python and Javascript? Why are there so many terms with the letters J and SQL? Listen to our no-judgment-starting-at-zero session even vets learn from. We'll review tech concepts and jargon you'll likely hear at the conference this year, explain what they mean, why they're useful and point you to the sessions that can teach you how to use the terms you now understand.

This session is good for: Anyone who has felt (even remotely) lost in the sea of technical terminology.
