It has really become part of them ni.
How best should they call recursion, polymorphism, race-condition, transaction, mutations, explicit and implicit actions, xss, ddos, adapters, etc.

It simply summarizes all they would say in minutes to some seconds. And both sides are clear, except one side is not used to the jargon of the profession

I could remember early 2016 I was learning Java and came across the word 'implicitly'. I don't have access to much internet it boiled down in me till I could lay my hands on Google just to discover they are stuffs done automatically. I can not just keep wondering how much ignorant I have felt with that action. So when I come up with a new jargon, I just relate it with the context, if I can not get, I ask the person that used it, and if I can't, then Google comes in.

It's just simply admitting we are students and ready to learn, some words too are new to senior developers sometimes.

Nobody is an island of knowledge, the goal is to keep improving.

I stop learn C++ in 2009 when I encounter the word polymorphism et al in a pdf ebook "Thinking in C++ - by Bjarne Stroustrup". I just start learning C++ on my own after my SSCE. Then I have nobody to advise me not to read a book like that at an early stage of learning. Before then I have been doing some console stuff 

I start using a dictionary but still not making sense. Had to abandon ship before I start to dey kolo. Then I moved to PHP where am trying to find my way out.

The Issue is Nigerian young Programmers like us need mentors/coach, to explain some stuff in simple terms

You are right. I am a testimony,. I move so far in a shorter period because I sat side by side with a pro developer.

I was not so lucky, I had to wad through the MUD on my own, got stuck, had to unstuck myself several times.
Things were terrible back then, no good internet or online communities to run to when you get stuck.
No browser console to even help you debug your javaScript, no wamp, xampp or any of those things.
