Obfuscation is when you hide, purposefully confuse, are overly ambiguous, or make your message difficult to interpret in a number of different ways. In relation to programming, obfuscation is a way of making your source code harder to read by other humans. You obfuscate your code by minifying your code. Minifying your code gets rid of all your comments and whitespace, thus making your code harder to read.
