// noun

EN After coming up with a great digital concept with our clients, we start building a wireframe to add a visual interpretation to the idea. Once the wireframe is confirmed, our graphic department starts defining a style, look and feel and finally they come up with a kick-ass design of the product we're going to build. In order to give everybody a realistic view on how the entire product will work (whether it's a website, an application or a configurator), we transform these designs into clickable, interactive prototypes and mock-ups with Invision. So it seems the product is already fully workable, but it's just a preliminary test mock-up we can share and collaborate on with our client. (Sometimes hard to explain you still needs months of actual coding to make it work) An ingenious tool that often improves the subsequent development process. Kudos to you, Invision!

NL Als we met onze klanten een geweldig digitaal concept hebben bedacht, beginnen we te bouwen aan een wireframe (zie wireframe) om al een visuele interpretatie van het idee te geven. Eens die wireframe goedgekeurd is, kan ons grafisch team een stijl beginnen definiëren, de look & feel, zoals dat heet. Ze bedenken dan een kick-ass design voor het product dat we gaan bouwen. Om iedereen een realistisch beeld te geven van hoe het uiteindelijke product ongeveer gaat werken (of dat nu een website, app of configurator is), transformeren we die designs nog in een doorklikbaar, interactief prototype en maken we mock-ups in Invision. Het lijkt dan alsof het product al volledig werkbaar is, maar in feite is het een voorlopige mock-up-test die we met onze klant kunnen delen en samen op kunnen verderwerken. (Het kan al eens een moeilijk gesprek zijn, dat er nog maanden aan eigenlijk programmeerwerk nodig zijn om het ook écht te doen werken.) Toch, goeien bal, Invision!

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.
