Noise Canceller

// noun

EN The invention of all inventions, especially when your desk finds itself in an open workspace. Super cool, hip and start-up-isch but you can't focus for 2 minutes, even if there is only 1 person talking out loud. There's 2 cures for that: Noise cancel headphones (they nearly suck your ears like a vacuum, it's awesome) and Slack (+kill your notifications). Use them both and you will thrive in productivity.


NL De uitvinding der uitvindingen, vooral wanneer je je in een open werkomgeving bevindt. Super cool, hip en kei-startup-ig, maar je kunt je voor geen 2 minuten concentreren, ook al is er maar één persoon luidop aan het spreken. Er zijn welgeteld twee remedies: Noise Cancelling hoofdtelefoons (die gaan lawaai actief neutraliseren) en Slack (chatten maakt zoveel lawaai niet). Gebruik ze allebei en je productiviteit bereikt weldra nieuwe hoogtes.

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.
