Emacs Pinky

Repetitive strain injury caused by constant use of one's "pinky finger" when using modifier keys in Emacs. This term has been adopted by developers using other editors or IDEs due to frequent use of quotes, ticks, braces, colon, semi-colon. etc. as they are dependent upon the use of the right hand pinky.

God I hate you PHP! Every day I have Emacs pinky because every line requires at least five keystrokes with my right hand's little finger.

Problematic

A word that describes behavior that is only offensive to people in Silicon Valley or elite colleges. If someone accuses your behavior of being problematic you are likely to be fired or get written up for an HR violation if you work at a tech company.

The fact that Kamdesh only eats pasta in the company cafeteria and the fact that he only dates Italian women is problematic because he is appropriating European culture and is sexist against Indian women in his dating preferences.

Covfefe

Coverage.

Word was first used by the forty-fifth president of the United States on an online news and social networking service called Twitter, where users post and interact with messages called "tweets", restricted to 140 characters. Twitter was created by four nerds Jack Dorsey, Noah Glass, Biz Stone, and Evan Williams who never dreamed their network would result in the birth of words like this.

Ex1: Uber has been getting alot of bad covfefe lately

Ex2: "Despite the constant negative press covfefe"

Ex3: Ray J leaked his sex tape with Kim Kardashian because he wanted to hurt her tabloid press covfefe. Ironically it ended up making her one of the most famous reality TV stars in the world.

LaCroix

The #1 drink of choice for startups. It is somehow delicious and calorie-free at the same time.

LaCroix was co-founded by Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg and most recently raised a Series Z from Andreessen Horowitz, with participation from the French government.

If you're interviewing for a startup, check their fridge for LaCroix, and if they don't have any, run for the hills!

"I'm gonna wash down this pull request with a Berry LaCroix."

Ponytail Bias

When you automatically assume someone is a great engineer because of their ponytail. This bias most often occurs with men who also have metal glasses frames and a beard that goes down to their neck.

James often experiences pony tail bias when he visits Seattle even though he's really a musician who plays with a band no ones ever heard of.
