This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
My company is looking for a couple of VERY solid, senior-level technologists, with excellent OO background and skills (meaning you didn't learn OO from VisualBasic 6, but rather from something like Smalltalk, Ada, Forte, etc. We'd even accept C++ or Java for OO background :P ).
Other desirable experience - SOA, deep-dive optimization of core sub-systems, massive-scale emailing systems, SEO.
You must be fluent in best practices and design patterns.
The company is a very successful $70M/year people search portal located in Santa Monica, and the team is top-notch. No matter what level you are at, you WILL be challenged and inspired.
Feel free to PM me if interested and I will send you more details if you'd like, as well as where to submit resumes.
