I liked the phrase "plug-and-play recruits"... very well written. :) I am surprised to see the statistics...60% from 15% in just one year? That makes me thinking, what has changed over this one year, which has increased the difficulty in finding the right candidate in just one year drastically. Yeah, I think it is the cost pressure, reduced spending in training, expectation that the new recruit shall be productive from day 1 and almost a fullstop on recruiting fresh engineers.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
