Mark Zuckerberg

// noun

EN He's the Facebook guy. Intergalactically rich and still wearing nothing but hoodies. He probably knows more about you and your friends than you do yourself, but luckily he is showing some signs of a human touch lately (could it be because there's now a woman by his side?). He acknowledges his major impact and wants to fight the fake news that got The Donald elected and he started a foundation that wants to eliminate all diseases. Let's hope the values of the philanthropy bug crawl into his product as well. Let me take a moment to say this too: Mark (and Steve) there is nothing wrong with a man wearing a suit once in awhile, absolutely nothing.


NL Mark Zuckerberg is die kerel van Facebook. Intergalactisch rijk en draagt nog altijd niks anders dan hoodies. Mr. Zuckerberg weet waarschijnlijk meer over jou en je vrienden dan jijzelf. Gelukkig vertoont hij ook tekenen van een menselijke touch de laatste tijd (misschien omdat er een vrouw aan zijn zijde staat?). Hij erkent zijn grote impact en wilt zich verzetten tegen het fake news dat Trump verkozen heeft gekregen. Ook is hij een stichting begonnen die alle ziektes de wereld uit wilt helpen. Laat ons hopen dat zijn filantropische waarden ook hun weg vinden naar zijn product. Als ik ook even de gelegenheid mag grijpen om volgende te zeggen: Mark (en Steve), er is heus niks mis met af en toe een kostuum dragen. Echt helemaal niks.


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.
