Today we have a special introduction to the newest member of our team! That means that we will be freewheeling through all things Oscar, taking in his history, current work, love of games, cocktails, music, and a whole lot more that you are not going to want to miss. To kick things off we hear from Oscar about his early interest in computers and tech, and how he began messing around with coding in high school. We also talk about the first time he used JavaScript, his initial thoughts on Vue and the community, and what keeps him excited about working with computers. From there, the conversation takes a decidedly casual turn to the other things that Oscar is passionate about, namely his piano, playing mobile games, going to restaurants, and making cocktails! We even get to hear about Oscar's dream to open a cocktail bar one day before we do a round of this week's picks. So to get it all, listen in and listen up, as we bring you the Oscarsode!
