Refresh

// verb

EN I think you already know this, so let's "refresh" your memory, lol. The first thing you should do when you see something strange on a web page is refresh your page. You know, use that circle arrow that you can find next to your browser address bar. Sometimes the webpage isn't visualised as it should because a signal didn't get through and you have to update or renew your page by sending a new signal or you really, really want those Tomorrowland tickets but the website keeps choking, etc., hence the refresh button!


NL Deze ken je, denk ik. Laat ons je je geheugen even “opfrissen”. Als een webpagina rare toeren uithaalt, is je eerste poging tot oplossen altijd: refreshen (‘vernieuwen’). Je kent het cirkelvormige pijltje wel dat zich ergens naast je adresbalk bevindt. Soms wordt een webpagina niet naar behoren weergegeven doordat een of ander signaal niet correct doorgekomen is. Dan is het tijd voor een update of vernieuw je de pagina door een nieuw signaal te sturen. Ook als je verwacht dat iets, tickets of zo, binnen de kortste keren online gaat komen en je er echt echt echt niet op kunt wachten. Dan ram je die refresh-knop ook in alsof je leven ervan afhangt. *kuch* Tomorrowland *kuch*

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.
