This week on My Angular Story, Charles speaks with Greg Wilson. Greg first got into programming when he took a computer class in college and realized that he really loved building software. He then went on to help build the world’s first wireless mouse and get a master’s degree in artificial intelligence. They really stress the importance of analytics and discuss many different studies on coding and bugs in today’s episode.
