001 - React and Vue

We’re talking our favourite lightweight Javascript framework/libraries: React and Vue. Senior full-stack developers Jesse O’Brien and Dan Soppelsa join our co-hosts, Eric and Margaret, for this debut Torqd chat.

Sit-in as we learn more about Jesse and Dan’s careers, history with the Javascript landscape, and philosophies on getting started or just keeping up. Stick around for thoughts on the future of jQuery, what to jump into for a first framework, and where best to start tinkering and learning.
