In general, slang is a term that describes words or a phrase that is very informal and used by a small group of people. With computers and computer-related topics there is a lot of computer slang used to describe an action, a person, or an event. For example, a technician may say you need to do a three-finger salute when describing pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del on the keyboard.
