I'm stuck understanding the difference between argot and jargon.
According to many sources, e.g. Wikipedia:
Argot is a secret language used by various groups—including, but not limited to, thieves and other criminals—to prevent outsiders from understanding their conversations.
Jargon is terminology which is especially defined in relationship to a specific activity, profession, group, or event.
My confusion is based on reading that the term of argot has appeared to describe a language of lower class young people in France. Can't recall the link, however.
Do they both refer the same term?
To be specific, computer professionals speak with argot or with jargon?
To be even more specific, let's stick to a community of computer pro's whose native language is other than English. The terminology in question includes "file", "deadline", "overflow", "hit" (as per Web page), and so on.
