Hot Tip

“More than ever, good engineering means more than good coding. A candidate’s breadth of understanding (eg. devops, data science, etc.), and appreciation for simplicity and scale is just as important. Additionally, what a candidate can contribute to our culture, and what they understand about our business weigh just as heavily.”
Brian O’Neill, Monetate (note: Brian will be speaking at Philly Tech Week’s Dev Conference on May 8! Register here)

The End

Since we’re on a sports kick, let’s talk about how Tiger Woods just became champion yet again with his victory at the Masters Tournament after not winning a major title in 11 years.
