Rubber Duck Debugging

Many programmers have had the experience of explaining a programming problem to someone else, possibly even to someone who knows nothing about programming, and then hitting upon the solution in the process of explaining the problem. In describing what the code is supposed to do and observing what it actually does, any incongruity between these two becomes apparent.

"Hey dude, are you talking to someone?" Nah dude, I'm just rubber duck debugging. "Oh cool, thought you were crazy."

    Three Commas Club

    Three commas to imply a billion dollars as $1,000,000,000 has 3 commas. To be in the three commas club is to be a billionaire.

    Richard’s literalness remains the one thing to rattle Russ. “You know what has three commas in it, Richard?” “A sentence with two appositive phrases in it?”

      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.

              Beast Mode

              Partially derived from the sports world (Marshawn Lynch going beast mode in the NFL). It is when you are super busy and have deadlines. You put on earplugs/headphones and drink caffeine in an attempt to knock out work/coding.

              Did you see Rohan? He went beast mode on that compiler program today and finished it on time.
              Man! Andrew went beastmode on my escalated technical cases today. Awesome!

                An engineer that fixes bugs and writes tests.

                Tim: I've just been fixing typos and writing tests for all the shitty code other engineers are putting out. When will I do real work?

                  @memobug true. For some definitions using the actual word made the example flow a little worse so I leave it out if it's obvious. What do you think?

                  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.

                    Lloyd: The other day I was talking to this girl when suddenly this nerdy Facebook employee starts talking to her, not even Mark, just a regular employee... and then she completely ignores me. I work in finance. I repeat, I work in finance. I miss New York.

                      The false assumption that anyone who can code or has a computer science degree can fix your computer or any household electronics.

                      Marco: Hey you study Computerz at that fancy university don' you? Could you fix my toaster?

                      Julian: Hell no. Why would I know how to do something like that.

                      Marco: Because computerz are basically more advance toasterz.

                        The team was exhausted from attending/pitching at multiple conferences during the same week, but pressed on- motivated by FOMO that their dream angel investor might be present.

                        Jack Dorsey

                        Founder of Square and Twitter. He reads alot of books on self-improvement and tries to build a zen-like culture within the work place like a poor man's Phil Jackson.

                        Jack Dorsey made us hold hands after the meeting today in a circle. It was awkward because I hear Stacy doesn't wash her hands after going to the bathroom.

                          The Rift

                          A title given to denote virtual reality. Popularized by people who have spent immense amounts of time in an Oculus Rift headset and were unable to fully communicate the things they had seen and experienced while present in what they consider a different realm.

                          Recruiter: Why should we hire you for our VR division?

                          Jack: Aye. In my time I have seen many things in the Rift. Things the likes of you, could never imagine...

                          Recruiter: Why are you crying?

                          Jack: I held my virtual daughter in my arms as the light vanished from her eyes. I fought dragons in Russia trying to protect the refugees of a city that's now burnt to the ground. I spent almost two years in isolation in the Rift reading about the ancient tombs of Java Script and Lisp. I'm hoping that this position will help me forget about my past. My time in the Rift.
