In this episode of Adventures in Angular, the panel talks to Brittany Moore about her unique experience into Angular. Brittany has been working as a front-end developer for about four years and is currently a consultant for Test Double. She was first introduced to Angular at a talk that John Papa gave and was blown away by the sheer power of it.
