EN Easy peasy Lemon squeezy! A plug-in is a simply installed add-on for a third party program or application, often a web browser. It adds new functionalities or extra features to the application. A well-known plug-in is Adobe's Acrobat reader, which lets you view documents in your browser as they would look when coming out of a printer, or maybe you know Lastpass, those are all plugins !


NL Een gemakkelijke! Een plug-in is simpelweg een geïnstalleerde add-on voor een programma of app van derden, vaak een webbrowser. Het voegt nieuwe functionaliteiten of extra eigenschappen toe aan de applicatie. Een heel bekende plug-in is de Adobe Acrobat Reader. Die laat je pdf-documenten openen in je browser, zoals ze uit je printer zouden komen. Een ander fenomenaal voorbeeld is Lastpass, dat al je wachtwoorden op één plaats veilig bewaart. Allemaal plug-ins!

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.
