MAS 036: Pascal Precht

Panel: Charles Max Wood
Guest: Pascal Precht
This week on My Angular Story, Charles speaks with Pascal Precht. Pascal is a software engineer doing a lot of Angular, Angular training, and building apps. He first got into programming near the end of school when his teacher suggested that he go to an informatics school. He found that he loved building websites with HTML and CSS and learned how to program after going back to school for a second time. They talk about what led him to Angular, his company Thoughtram, and what he is proud of contributing to the Angular community.
In particular, We dive pretty deep on:
