The phrase brain dump refers to these things:

  1. Generally, the transfer of a large quantity of information from one person to another or to a storage and retrieval medium is referred to as a 'brain dump'.
  2. In slang, it can describe a hurried explanation of a system, job, skillset, or other engineering subject.
  3. In computing, the phrase describes the taking of a snapshot of the internal state of a knowledge database for transfer or archiving purposes. Thus, the copying of any dataset might be called a 'brain dump' if its contents could be colloquially referred to as a 'brain'.
