Git

// noun

EN Git is a modern, open source version control system for developers. So when working on a software project, developers can upload their code for each version of the project, keeping it safe, well-organised and maintained. Git is an example of a distributed VCS (version control system), which means it doesn't have just one single place for the full version history of the software. In Git, every developer's working copy of the code is also an archive that can contain the full history of all changes, which makes it even more secure and flexible. The main focus is backup, cooperation on large projects, versioning and logs. The most fun part is the 'Blame-function' that one shows you exactly who screwed up the code so you can all eyeball them at the coffee machine. Our developers use Gitlab, a web-based Git repository manager. This way, their code is always safe and sound. Happy coding you guys!


NL GIT is een modern, open source versiebeheersysteem voor programmeurs. Als je aan een softwareproject werkt, kunnen developers hun code uploaden voor elke versie van het project, om het veilig te bewaren. Duidelijk georganiseerd en goed onderhouden. GIT is een voorbeeld van gedistribueerde VCS (Version Control System), wat betekent dat de volledige versiegeschiedenis van de software op meerdere plaatsen wordt bijgehouden. In GIT is elke werkende kopie van de code tegelijk ook een archief waarin de ganse geschiedenis van alle wijzigingen kan zitten. Dat maakt het alleen maar veiliger en flexibeler. De belangrijkste focus is backup, samenwerking op grote projecten, versiegeschiedenis en logs. Het plezantste stuk is dan nog de ‘Blame-functie’. Die toont je exact wie de code om zeep heeft geholpen, en dan kan je hen afkeurende blikken werpen aan de koffiemachine. Onze developers werken met Gitlab, een web-based Git-opslagbeheer. Zo is de code altijd veilig en wel.  


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.
