A Look Inside Yahoo!


Yahoo! Building D

The second day I was in California, my friend Dav Glass gave me a tour of the Yahoo! campus in Sunnyvale. The appearance and general vibe I received while I was there took some getting used to: everyone seemed excited to be there. They had good reason to be: they have their own beach volleyball court, live music, restaurant, game room, and I’m just scratching the surface here. Here’s a video of a “virtual tour” of Yahoo! if you’re interested:

The next day, I met up with Matt Hackett and visited “Summer Jam ’07” for web developers, which was really cool: they had live music from Yahoo! (and Lockheed) web devs!

There are many more photos from the event on Flickr. I met some really cool people there who were actually interested in web development! (Imagine that.) Plus, the music was very good.

I’m really glad I had the opportunity to experience Yahoo! and a big thanks to Matt and Dav for showing me around!
