Eventbrite VP of Engineering Pat Poels spoke with CourseReport recently about hiring non-traditional engineering candidates from places like Hackbright Academy.

Here are the top five questions we hear from prospective hiring partners – and his answers at https://hackbrightacademy.com/blog/eventbrite-engineering-pat-poels

Q: HOW DO YOU SUCCESSFULLY ONBOARD NEW ENGINEERS?
A: “This is something we’ll continue to get better at over time, but it starts with having a mentor assigned to work with you on your first day. That person is there to answer your questions. The environment is important as well. On a team of 145 engineers, we all know that we’re successful based on the success of the rest of the team..."

At the recent Women in Technology International Summit, women with “non-traditional” backgrounds (early careers in ballet, art, civil engineering, education) gathered to advise on how to join the Silicon Valley tech elite as engineers, entrepreneurs and leaders! Read on below for their different profiles.

Where are the satisfying answers as to why childcare is getting even more expensive?
There are many theories about an issue very close to the hearts, and wallets, of parents. We investigate.

I'm with Adda Birnir on "Why I’m Over Getting Girls to Code" --

"Instead of focusing our efforts exclusively on keeping girls in the pipeline until they become women, what if we offer women some trampolines that they can use to bounce back into tech jobs later in life?

Here’s the thing: focusing so exclusively on girls promotes the single most insidious idea that’s keeping women AND girls from flocking to the tech world: that if you don’t learn to code early in life, it’s too late."

Capybaras
Sure, monkeys bathing in natural hot springs are cute and famous and all, but they’re just monkeys, not giant rodents! Who doesn’t want to watch the world’s biggest rodents bathe in hot water? No one, that’s who. Thankfully, the annual capybara hot spring (onsen) event at Izu Shaboten Park will reopen on December 2 ...

The shakshuka hooked us in the fall, and now epic brunch items are calling us back to Barkada. The Fifth Quarter corned beef with organic eggs on the best English muffin you've ever had is a wonderful consolation prize when tomatoes are not in season for shakshuka. Five stars.

People are really great here - they make donating blood quick and easy. The only thing is that their Saturday hours end really early - at 2:30pm - so get in early!

The food is California cuisine - exemplary! The tablecloth/napkins are adorable, and the decor of the restaurant is so curious that restaurant-industry insiders that there are always people poring over the detail of the decor. The drinks are wonderful and the outdoor patio is beautiful.

What Farmers Market is to Iceland is what Anthropologie is to the United States. Farmers Market boasts iconic Icelandic style and design. Great stylings scattered around an atmospheric store in the old harbor of Reykjavik. My sister loves their pants, and I love the dresses and knit hats by Farmers Market.

Check out the current exhibits. This place has great art from Gursky to Lewis Carroll. The rooftop cafe is the best - try the Mondrian cake and the other artsy snacks. I only wish the creepy bug sculptures would disappear from the roof. Going to the cafe requires museum admission, however.

There is only one other Pinkberry in the San Francisco Bay Area - it is by Macy's. So I was so happy to find this Pinkberry in the Virgin America terminal 2 at SFO Airport. The texture and flavor is wonderful, per Pinkberry standards. The location is killer (next to Plant Cafe).
