Torqd examines the tools and concepts that developers use on the job. We talk web frameworks, career choices, community events, industry news, and anything else that keeps the engine running.
React Native is a framework that builds applications for both IOS and Android systems. We have some curiosity about React Native and Lucas and Alex join us to tell us about their experience with React and React Native.
- How does React Native compare to the original React?
- What sort of workflow can you expect?
- What languages can you use with React Native?
- How long does a build take?
Lucas and Alex answer all these questions and offer their opinions on the tool. We also discuss the alternative to React and how a newbie could get their feet wet.

So how do you like to work? Are you a multi-monitor user? Do you prefer the lights on or off? Dan and Margaret sit down with Adam Frank and Brian Hogg and compare preferences, quirks, and techniques when they want to get down to work and have a productive time.
We discuss strategies and tips we’ve collected over time. We share tools we find work for us and what doesn’t work for us. Productivity is a personal experience and there is no right way to do it. Here at Vehikl we welcome all work styles and try to accommodate our team as much as possible.
Tune in to learn about some really helpful productivity tools!

We’re back with part two of our inaugural Torqd book club; discussing Robert “Uncle Bob” Martin’s “Clean Architecture” with Colin DeCarlo, Brad Brothers, and Lucas Gladding. This time, we’re starting from the beginning of the book, diving into the SOLID acronym, dissecting the principles behind it, and debating when and how to put new lessons from a book into daily practice.
