The app started at Pomona College as a crowd-sourced list of terms one is expected to understand when working in the High-Performance Computing environment. A group of student workers sat in a conference room one day and shouted out terms they heard around the ITS department while working in HPC Support. It included some terminology from Computer Science, some from Statistics, Machine Learning, Computer Vision, Data Science, and many others. The group attempted to tie together hardware and software concepts and create a path for a complete novice to follow towards feeling like they can belong and participate. The group has more functionality planned for the subsequent versions. All of the students in the group learned the development skills as they met weekly during the two semesters in 2018 and 2019 and even worked over the summer of 2019.
