Jobsite Series to Visit Yahoo – RSVP by Nov. 8

Each week the LightHouse is coordinating a group of individuals to meet with their employed counterparts working for the Bay Area’s leading businesses and institutions.

Our next jobsite excursion will take place on Wednesday, November 9th. We will be visiting Jim Barbour, Principal Systems Architect at Yahoo.

Jim has been working at Yahoo for 2 1/2 years. He leads small teams of engineers through projects involving computer programming, cloud computing management, capacity planning (how many machines it takes to handle 10,000 queries per second) and systems management (what to do when a bunch of computers lose power). Before joining Yahoo, Jim worked at Google for five years.

When not working, Jim enjoys hiking, skiing and cooking, and he does a fair bit of reading.

Please RSVP by Tuesday, November 8th, as space is limited.
