A hacker is a person who attempts to gain unauthorized access to a system. Hackers exploit holes in security defenses such as old software, open network ports, weak passwords, etc. A hacker can also be a person who integrates software written by other people.

A hand over is when a person describes their role to another people. It is often used when one person leaves and another will take their place.

A high level estimate (may also be referred to as: order of magnitude (OOM)) is a very rough (hopefully educated) guess which gives the requester a guide for their expectations. For example, a HLE for building an extension on a house may be 3-4 months. With this estimate, the homeowner can manage their own expectations about how long the build will affect the household.  HLE can be provided for effort, duration, financial cost, materials, etc. HLEs should be validated and become standard estimates or better still quotes. See also: Order of magnitude (OOM).

A hit on a website is when a file is served. Each page can be made up of multiple files. The page itself, cascading style sheets (CSS), images, etc. The number of hits to a website is not a good measure of the popularity of the website.

A hot desk is a desk which is usually not allocated to a particular individual, and can instead be used temporarily. It will usually have standard features such as: desk, chair, phone, and may / may not have a PC.
