Pivot

We failed. Now, we're starting over, possibly with something completely different.

We started out by building a SoLoMo network for hermits. We've now pivoted to becoming the Uber of door-to-door encyclopedia sales.

    Code Couple

    Programming partners (in work or school) that are also involved with one another romantically.

    Jeremy and Liz are the hottest code couple at Stanford. I hear after finishing their compilers projects they hold hands and read quantum computing books until both their bodies are exhausted.

      This Guy Fucks

      Made popular by Russ Hanneman on the Silicon Valley show. It is just something to say when you want to mess with somebody. Meaningless. Could also mean this guy has a lot of sex but its impossible to tell.

        Codecademy

        The default answer lazy software engineers give to their non-techinical friends, when asked what the best way to learn how to code is.

        Jimmy: You're such a good programmer. I want to learn how to code, but already have this Haas degree and can't go back to college. What can I do to learn today?

        Bobby: I don't know man, google it. I hear Codecademy is a thing. I just want to go back to playing DOTA.

          Bill: "....yes."

              TresCommas

              This word's roots comes from the number 1,000,000,000. Which has 3 commas. TresCommas is a club that was formed by billionaires. The word is a hybrid of Spanish and English. "Tres" meaning three (3), and Commas meaning, well, commas ",". The only way to be inducted into the TresCommas Club is to have a net worth of at least 1 billion dollars. Correct usage of the word requires an inter-cap spelling, both the "T" and "C" should always be capitalized to further emphasize what it denotes. Should a club member's net worth fall below TresCommas, membership status is instantly revoked. Members are easy to spot in SV because the cars they drive have Billionaire Doors. TresCommas is also a brand of Tequila, which is only available to members of the TresCommas club.

              I'm in the TresCommas club and have the Tequila to prove it.

                The Five Dollar Footlong Lean Startup Diet

                When a startup founder lives off of five dollar foot long sandwiches to save money for his or her early stage venture. They buy a single five dollar foot long subway sandwich, eat half of it in the afternoon and the other half at dinner.

                Since Julius is on the five dollar day long diet, he only eats footlong subway sandwiches everyday to conserve his companies startup money. It's kind of sad.

                Big 4

                For a software engineer this generally refers to Amazon, Facebook, Google and Microsoft.

                If I don't get into a Big 4 my life is over. They are so prestigious

                  Haashole

                  A student pursuing an undergraduate, Masters, or PhD degree from UC Berkeley's Haas School of Business.

                  I don't know whether to add Derrick to our Hackathon team. He's just a Haashole who tries too hard and doesn't understand how anything works. He's a great bullshiter though so maybe he would be useful for the presentation.

                      That's Startup Life

                      The default response whenever someone talks about how shitty being an entrepreneur is.

                      Kim: I've been working for the past 15 hours, can't afford anything but Taco Bell and investors are telling me they want to circle back in a few months. We all know what that means. This sucks.
                      Matthew: That's startup life. What do you expect?

                          Thought this could be on Slack which would make audience even smaller. "I've done my part in the movement since I discussed it in my private Slack group."

                        A startup uses this word when it's no longer a startup

                        "Hey congrats on the series B!"
                        "Thanks! Are your deliverables in yet?"

                        Facebook Reach

                        Facebook reach is the number of people that see posts from Facebook pages. Organic Facebook reach has dropped since Facebook made changes to their feed algorithm to encourage companies to buy ads promoting page posts.

                        It's almost pointless for our startup to promote our Facebook page because we will have to pay to get any Facebook reach.

                        Using a productivity tool called Slack to get work done or communicate with one's team. This can easily be confused to mean "not doing one's work."

                        Jack: You've been getting alot done.

                        James: Yeah man, I've been slacking all day.

                            US Bitcoin Legislative Arms Race

                            This references the pressure Bitcoin startups have to show significant traction or get acquired before the United States outlaws the use of Bitcoin (whether this will or will not happen is of course debatable).

                            Look man, because of the US Bitcoin Legislative Arms Race, our job is to make enough sales and sell out before the House and Senate make some extreme move in banning Bitcoin and making our company essentially worthless here in the US. I don't want to move to Greece man.
