MAS 011 Isaac Schlueter: My Angular Story
Taking the Programming Path
In Isaac's childhood days, his dad brought home an IBM computer from his office. He went to the library and got books on programming. He began to type the program from the book into the computer and played games. He initially had fun but soon he got bored with it.
When he reached high school, he realized that he could program his graphing calculator to provide the answer directly. He once got into trouble in his physics class when he aced one quiz without showing his solutions on his paper. Thankfully, he got out of it by explaining to his teacher how he did it. He soon moved to California, got a job, and found his way to the web.
In San Diego, California, he landed on to a job in a software company where he did text support. He wanted to go to grad school but didn't have enough money to do so. So, he did some research on the internet and studied. While doing so, he stumbled upon blogs that had a deep discussion on topics like CSS and PHP. He then got promoted to a web development role in the company where he was working.
“They're not an amazing company; they are an amazing school. If you're an engineer, and it's early on in your career, go work at Yahoo…You'll learn a lot.” – Isaac Schlueter
