LAMP is an acronym for a solution stack of free, open source software, originally coined from the first letters of Linux (operating system), Apache HTTP Server, MySQL (database software), and PHP, principal components to build a viable general purpose web server. The software combination has become popular because it is free of cost, open-source, and therefore easily adaptable, and because of the ubiquity of its components that are bundled with most current Linux distributions.
Like slang or jargon, lingo is the language used by people who work in a particular field or who have a common interest. It can be used as a kind of short-hand, to express ideas that are frequently discussed between members of a group. We try to do our best to speak plainly with our clients, but sometimes we find ourselves falling into the bad habit of using lingo, which is one of the reasons we thought a Glossary might be helpful.
Of everything Sudden has accomplished since we began, probably the thing that we’re most proud of is the long-term relationships we have with our clients. In a business that is always looking for the next hot trend, software, or design, it’s nice to know that our clients continue to keep engaging us for new projects based on the quality of the service we have provided. We think it’s also based on our “high-touch” approach to project management and our ability to successfully shepherd our clients through difficult projects.
