Beer o’ Clock

// noun

EN Every Friday morning (and sometimes even sooner) some of our colleagues with a certain substance related disorder ask the question 'Is it beer o'clock yet?'. Which basically means they are already thirsty for our Friday afternoon appetizer. At 4 p.m. we gradually dismantle our energy level and make time for leisure. It's the perfect ending of the work week and a swift launch into the weekend. All work and no play...

NL Elke vrijdagochtend en soms zelfs vroeger beginnen sommige collega’s (met een ieniemienie drankprobleem) te vragen of het al beer o’clock is. Dat betekent zoveel als ‘Ik heb al dorst en goesting in een vrijdagnamiddagapperitiefje”. Om 16u beginnen we gradueel ons concentratieniveau te ontmantelen en tijd te maken voor ontspanning. Het is het perfecte einde van de werkweek en een gezwinde lancering van het weekend. All work and no play...

What's with this lexicon?

Digital transformation, Artificial intelligence, Robots takings our jobs, ... my GOD what a scary time we live in! Right? No, not really. We live in a very exciting time of endless possibilities, of genius new answers to questions we haven’t even been able to formulate... Some people just want to make good money by starting a fire and then being hired to put it out. We don’t like that at Bagaar. No apocalyptic vibes for us, we’re too zen for that.

The intelligence game will be won by those who know how to ask & answer questions critically.

Technology is evolving at a crazy pace, absolutely, and sometimes it might be a bit mindblowing, but don’t worry, humans are still the writers of this story, we decide how it goes. At Bagaar we help our clients every day to gear up for any technological challenge they may be up to, we have a very big toolbox of digital answers to their problems and are very happy to help them in writing their own story. This time we wanted to do something not only for our clients but for everyone, our moms, the guy at the busstop, politicians, journalists, whoever may be helped with a little free knowledge.

Core message here: Trojan: Nice for the greeks, not for you.

So, we wrote this lexicon in the assumption that if people would have more information, and a bit of guidance, they wouldn’t have to feel so helpless when hearing about Digital transformation, MVP’s, Frontend, AWS, Trojans, UX, UI, ... (Que?) We assembled all the buzzwords we use on a daily basis and tried to give a down to earth, simple explanation for each of them. Take it with you, read through it when you’re waiting on a train or getting your nails done and next time somebody starts a fire, you just blow it out yourself (or if it’s too big call Bagaar).

So, you just talked to a developer and didn’t understand any of the words he/she used? If those words aren’t in our lexicon yet, we’ll translate them to human language for you.
