      Swoop n' Poop

      When a stakeholder, manager, or client who has not been involved in the project drops into a meeting and adds extra functionality requirements or makes comments that change the scope.

      Everything was going fine until Chad came in out of no where and pulled a "Swoop n' Poop". Now we are three days until deadline and have to scrap the whole thing!

        Undev

        Short for: Undead developer
        See related: Undead

        A developer who is constantly in a braindead state, having become accustomed to a severe degree of apathy (causes may vary) and low motivation. Usually, groups of them are found in companies with a highly lucrative business model coupled with low competition in their segment of the industry.

        Identifiers: Unable to think, learn, or communicate despite repeated encouragement, instruction, and subsequent reprimanding.

        Some studies have shown that undev-ness is contractable, but the means by which it spreads continues to elude scientists.

          Slacktivism

          Supporting a cause in the laziest way possible, usually on social media. You feel like you're helping without getting out of your chair.

            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."

              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.

                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.

                  Jeremy Lin

                  The perfect child. A Harvard graduate and now a player in the NBA. He is often used in reference by parents (especially in Palo Alto where he went to High School) to "motivate" their child to do better in all aspects of life.

                  Krishna Lee: Mom, I got into UCLA!
                  Mom: "WHY YOU NO LIKE JEREMY LIN. HE GO TO HARVARD AND PLAY IN NBA."

                    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.

                    Amazon

                    A company that sells groceries to the lazy, stock shares to the gullible, and cloud services to the lazy and gullible.

                    Amazon: because I want to buy my underwear and Redis clusters from the same company.

                          When a Facebook employee reaches a major life milestone and Mark Zuckerberg has acknowledged their existence by liking their Facebook profile picture. This normally happens after their team pushes a major feature onto the Facebook web or mobile client..

                          I've been working at Facebook as a Product Manager for 3 years and I've finally gotten the Zuckerberg like. I nearly fainted. I'm going to work here until I'm dead.

                            Refers to the $1 a year salary that a lot of founders and top executives take on for tax benefits. It's also because who really cares about salary when you have a billion dollars.

                            Mark Zuckerberg: I make $1 a year. You know what that means
