Recreational Cyber Team Building

Playing a MOBA or online FPS on the same team to increase trust between one another.

Our office had a Recreational Cyber Team Building hour at work. I discovered everyone at the office sucks at video games.

Compiler

Basically converts your source code ("think of these as your commands") into an executable program that you use.

My compiler ran my python code and now allows me to see the amount of time between whatever 2 dates that I input. I call it Day Span.

Github Flexing

Sharing your Github profile in as many places as possible with the intention of showing off all the work you've done on various projects.

Mark: Fuck Ryan is such a God. He showed me his github last night and now I'm sure we won't be able to beat him in the Hackathon.

Vanessa: Nah don't worry, he's just Github flexing

Version Control

Basically means multiple people can go back to previous iterations of a product. This is important because if you release new code that destroys your product you can go back to the version that worked.

Often used in the descriptions of sites like Github, Bitbucket, etc.

Rob and Mike didn't use any version control software, so as soon as their intern pushed buggy code to their system they had to go offline for a week.

Military Artifical Intelligence

Plain and simple: Weapons that adapt. They aren't robots per se, just weapons that attack and make calculations based on key information.

Elon Musk and Stephen Hawking are among those calling for a ban on military AI as that they could set off a revolution in weaponry comparable to gunpowder and nuclear arms

Domain Squatting

Ryan: Of course...

Lewis: Well it was originally owned by him.

The Crunchies

A tech award show held in San Francisco where Techcrunch gives trophies to millionaire entrepreneurs and investors in an attempt to mirror an archaic Hollywood practice.

Rob: I don't know why they gave us these things. It's like a statue to celebrate how much money we've earned? What did you do with your Crunchie?

Martha: I gave it to my housekeeper's child.

Kale

Sometimes called "the world's healthiest food." It has become a staple for many Bay Area residents who pride themselves on living a healthy lifestyle.

It also has become a stereotypical food group subjected to highly pretentious techies and food snobs who flaunt their supposed physical and mental superiority over people.

Jack: Why do you eat so much Kale.

Ryan: Because I want everyone to know how healthy I am. Maybe Sabrina will notice me and ask me about my clean code and my clean eating habits.

Jack: Or you can go talk to her....

Ryan: No, she has to make the first move or else I'll appear to desperate.

Jack: But you are desperate...that's why you're eating so much kale.

Techie Scum

A term often used when trying to angrily describe software engineers or people who work at software companies.

This term is usually coupled with stereotypes such as wearing a hoodie, consuming kale, drinking Philz or Bluebottle coffee, rimmed glasses, gentrification, etc.

Lewis: My rent is going up by 500$ this year. What in the fuck is happening.

Ray: It's because of the horde of techie scum that's moved in this month.

The 2140 Bitcoin Cap

There is an arbitrary cap of around 21 Million Bitcoins in existence (absolutely no more than this will ever be made). It's calculated that the final Bitcoin will be distributed in 2140.

Because of this people speculate that it's value will spike greatly, when they are no longer mineable or purchasable by traditional means.

I'm going to buy a single Bitcoin and pass it down my family for generations so that the family member that experiences the 2140 Bitcoin Cap will be able to cash out on my small predicted investment.

Analytics

Sounds fancy, but it's just a data measuring mechanism that gives you info on customer app visits.

An example would be Mixpanel or Google Analytics which tells you stuff like how many people are going and staying on your site, how many people are making accounts, etc.

Lauren: Our user base is growing exponentially.

Jack: WOAH HOW DO YOU KNOW THAT.

Lauren: This fancy graph in the analytics shows us, my friend.

Jack: Math is power!

Lauren: Uh...yeah. I guess.

East Bay Startups

Despite mainstream view, they indeed exist are are growing more and more prevalent. With the absurd prices in San Francisco and Palo Alto, areas in Downtown Oakland, Emeryville, and pockets of Berkeley have seen increased growth in new company offices.

Many also consider living in the East Bay incredibly convenient, despite it's reputation for crime. It is often asked whether east bay startups should be considered apart of "Silicon Valley," to which many reply..."meh close enough."

Winston: Where is your startup office located good sir.

James: Oakland son.

Winston: I am not familiar with this Oak-Land. How far is it from Sand Hill Road?

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.

It's the website people visit when realizing that despite what they said during their interview about having passion for the product, it was always about the money.

Sloan: What are you building for this years hackathon?

Jim: I'm building a Python interpreter.

Sloan: Why?

Jim: Because I think a robot who could communicate with snakes and humans could be incredibly useful.

Sloan: ...
