MAS 028: Greg Wilson

Guest: Greg Wilson
This week on My Angular Story, Charles speaks with Greg Wilson. Greg first got into programming when he took a computer class in college and realized that he really loved building software. He then went on to help build the world’s first wireless mouse and get a master’s degree in artificial intelligence.
