How It All Began
Intern vs Full-Time Google Engineer
At the beginning, an intern comes for a few months usually around summer. In Rodric's case, he ended up as a contractor back when he was in Montreal, doing some remote work. A full-timer works as a part of the team in Google. In his experience as an intern in the Angular team, he had knowledge on the Angular 1 which made him do similar responsibilities with other team members, particularly working on the core. He realized that it's more about your knowledge than your employment status.
Life in the Angular Core Team
He was with the Angular core team around 2014 or 2015. When he released a new version, it had a bug that brought down a lot of tests inside Google. It ended up like the name collision was a library used by many Google's Angular applications used internally. He, along with the team, figured out its naming inclusion, and ended up making its property become unique. They added his favorite number to it which was 339. If you look at any element in Angular 1, you would find a property called NG 339. To hear the rest of My Angular Rodric Haddad, download and listen to the entire episode.
