I think it’s quite interesting that Angular started off as just a side project. A lot of the dialog is Misko Hevery, a great programmer first began that project that would become Angular. He now works at Google supporting and improving the language, most recently with the release Angular 2.
I also eases my nerves a little bit to know that Misko came from Adobe and was an Actionscript 3 guy. Although I haven't done too much flex development, I do remember some parts about dependency injection and templates. But seeing Misko so excited and passionate to Angular.js just makes me feel like I'm in the right place.
