MAS 007 Dylan Johnson: My Angular Story
Meet Dylan Johnson
After graduating from college in 2010, Dylan worked at a marketing firm. He didn't really expect he'd pursue programming. He used to provide designs and marketing services to stores.
Service to the Market
Dylan noticed how a lot of franchisees allocated their budget arbitrarily. They knew the market size and the importance of certain stores.
To help them out, Dylan built a cell template that would pull the data from their point of sales. He used pivot tables to help them allocate their budget more efficiently. At that point, he did not even know what algorithm was.
A Change of Heart
After a year, Dylan quit his job in the marketing firm. He decided to learn more about coding and to eventually start his own data firm.
In his pursuit to get better with codes, he took different kinds of work. Dylan accepted contracts for front-end work, basic html CSS, vector illustration, and others.
His goal slowly changed from starting his own business to becoming a good software engineer. He grew fond of understanding layers and figuring how to find ideas.
