Last Friday, the CyberCoders family headed over to the beautiful Balboa Bay Club for some lunch, laughs and—of course—an astounding collection of performances by 17 CyberCoders teams.
This is a beloved, annual tradition at the House of CC, in which each team prepares an amazing song, skit or dance with a Christmas and CyberCoders theme. We certainly took the house down with our singing voices!
The talent in our group astounds the eye and ear. :) Check out some highlights:
The performances started off with a bang with Team Small Direction, starring little dancing elves! :)
Next up, a fantastic #hashtag #skit by the Deals of Fortune!
TKO performed a clever, funny song!
The Devs Without Hats geared up for their phenomenal performance!
The No. 1 winners: The Playa Vista Social Club and their amazing throwback to the 90s, featuring Boyz to Men, Backstreet Boys, Spice Girls and Michael Jackson! Bravo!Read More
When the House of CyberCoders heard about the devastating typhoon in the Philippines, we were all deeply saddened.
For one CyberCoders teammate, the disaster was particularly personal.
“I lived in Tacloban, Leyte for about a year or so,” says CyberCoders Executive Recruiter Jennifer Valesquez. “I was about three or four years old and my father was developing the area—building the infrastructure such as roads, bridges, etc.” In fact, her paternal grandmother is from the area as well. She has some fond childhood memories of the affected area.
Velasquez generously shared these precious photos of her father when he was developing the area as part of his company, RJV Construction:
“Luckily, I don’t have any more family left in the area. My childhood best friend lost her house, but she was able to escape with her daughter prior to the typhoon.” Unfortunately, Velasquez’s family did lose their house and farm as well.
“Seeing the aftermath photos really haunted me,” Velasquez says.Read More
CyberCoders wishes you a wonderful, prosperous and delicious Thanksgiving!
Here at the House of CyberCoders, we have so much to be thankful.
This is our 14th annual Thanksgiving feast! Each CyberCoders team member brought their families and either an appetizer or dessert, and the House of CC provided the main entrees. Everyone votes for their favorite dishes!
While we feasted, the men of CyberCoders Movember gathered together and received a smooth shave to culminate the month-long health initiative. It was a joyful day as the Cyber kids enjoy tons of games, prizes and treats too!
Check out CyberCoders Thanksgiving highlights:
Mr. Gobble, the vegetarian turkey, won first place for best appetizer presentation!
Toys and prizes galore!
So many fun prizes, so little time! Each Cyber kid won a prize for doing a cool trick. Some notable highlights: Head stand, playing the violin and giving CyberCoders CEO Heidi Golledge a hug! :) Pure joy.

The House of CyberCoders has been collecting supplies to be shipped to the Philippines to help the victims of Typhoon Haiyan. Together, we filled up a dozen+ boxes of goods to send to aid the surviving victims.
We collected tons of canned goods, first aid kits, candles, matches, solar powered lanterns, clothing, soap and much more.
Typhoon Haiyan was one of the largest tropical storms to shake the land in the world. At 190 mph, the typhoon has affected millions of people. It was one of the deadliest storms to hit the country. Our thoughts are with the victims of this terrible tragedy.Read More

When sending out your resume electronically, avoid using a PDF! Your best bet is to stick with a Word doc.
Why? Fair question.
Before your resume ever gets in front of a hiring manager or recruiter, it has to get past a formidable gatekeeper – the Applicant Tracking System. In many cases, an ATS cannot read a PDF.Read More
