Lexicon

Wordbarf

// noun

EN We all know what 'words' are, and I don't think anybody's waiting on me visualising 'barf', so let's not make it too complicated. If you barf words, you say or write down everything that comes up in your mind, without thinking too much about it. It's an excellent way to start your brainstorm session or just to let off some steam when you're frustrated.


NL Ok, dus iedereen weet wat een Woord is? En Barf betekent zoveel als 'kots'. Maar wanneer gebruik je deze charmante term? Als je een Kerouac-onberedeneerde-woorden-stroom produceert, gewoon alles zegt wat in je opkomt zonder het te overdenken, dan heb je een wordbarf. Super handig voor brainstorms, therapiesessies of om stoom af te laten. Niet mega handig voor familiefeesten of op mondelinge examens.

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.
