This week on My Angular Story, Charles speaks with Kim Maida. Kim is a technical content lead at Auth0, and her job is to oversee the team that writes content for their blog. She first got into programming when she learned HTML at a summer camp when she was 12. She fell in love with it and discovered that she wanted to create websites. They talk about her journey into the programming world, her introduction to Angular, and what she is working on now.
