There's no one that I know personally who has a more interesting backstory than Dan Abramov. In a matter of years he went from hacking on VBA and C# apps for $200 a week in Russia to building one of the most popular JavaScript libraries (Redux) and working as an engineer at Facebook. I've always been curious about this process and I finally got the chance to ask him all about it. In this episode we talk about his upbringing and what it's like learning to program in Russia, the backstory of how Redux came to be, handling burnout, and much more.
