Waterloo

A mythical University in Canada where many good Engineers and Computer Scientists come from.

Sam: "Where are all these Canadians from?"
Matthew: "We hired 10 interns and 20 full-times from Waterloo. They get shit done because if we don't hire them, they'll have to work for Blackberry."

    @SingleCommaClub It's similar to what you see from immigrants to a new country like US or Canada

    @SingleCommaClub That's not true at all. Pretty much everyone I know from my graduating class got offers from US companies. A significant proportion of students choose to stay because the region is booming right now, and also the quality of life in Canada is pretty high.

    Have worked with a lot of engineers from Waterloo through internships and full time. Can honestly say they are very talented, but there is a bias because all the ones that make it to US companies are generally top notch.

Slack Overflow

The state of perpetual notification pinging on each of your devices as a result of participating in way too many Slack channels.

Alice: Why did you need to take a mental health day yesterday?
Bob: Slack Overflow.

    Janitor at startup

    The title an asshole CEO (generally a sole founder) puts on their Linkedin title to show they have the ability to fire anybody.

    Random dude: Where do you work?
    Albert: I am at the greatest game company around called BigVikingGames
    Random dude: Cool, what do you do there?
    Albert: I am the janitor, I just take out the trash!
    Random dude: cool story bro

      Winter is coming

      The fear of a major economic crash becoming imminent during times of relative prosperity.

      Raise your VC money now. Any day this "bubble" may pop and it will be a cold winter indeed. A few unicorns will die and many will be seeking warmth in places they never even knew existed. Winter is coming.
