Beginning of a Journey

His Discovery of Angular
After his experience with his previous company, he moved to another where he was involved with a very interesting project. He had to run a Java outlet in a browser. He did remote desktop sharing and rendered the outlet on the canvass in the user browser.
After that, a company in Silicon Valley found his blog and invited him to work for them. They wanted to build a web application for education. He chose Angular when he was asked which technology he wanted to use. Angular captured him because its objectives, principles, and features made him really excited.
