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.
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.
If you haven’t read the book, it might be a good idea to give it at least a skim before listening to this episode. Heck, we’d argue that it’s worth reading for your career alone, whether or not you listen to Torqd! We got so much from it that we broke our discussion into a two-parter.

Gather ‘round for the inaugural Torqd book club. For our first entry, we’re looking at “Clean Architecture” by Robert “Uncle Bob” Martin. With guests Colin DeCarlo, Brad Brothers, and Lucas Gladding, we’ll explore some of the larger concepts covered in the book (dependency inversion, plugin architecture, design patterns, tech debt) and hit on a few of our guests’ favourite parts.
What is imposter syndrome? What makes it so tough to get over? Does it hit our industry harder than others? Brian and Daniel join Margaret and Dan to explore their own views on, experiences of, and ways to cope with that “I don’t belong here” feeling.
Adam and Stephen rejoin Margaret and Dan for a short recap of VueConf US 2018 in New Orleans. How much did we learn? What did we eat? Where did we drink? Who got searched for contraband at the airport? Tune in to find out!
Heading to VueConf US in New Orleans this week? So are we! Adam and Stephen join Margaret and Dan to talk food, drinks, and fun in The Big Easy. Stick it out long enough, and we might even talk about the conference.
With VueConf US approaching, we’re looking at our experiences with Vue in production. Returning guest Colin DeCarlo and new-to-the-show guest Brian Hogg sit down with Dan and Margaret for an overVue.
What is a11y all about? What does this mean from a user’s perspective? How does accessibility weigh-in on your project costs? Join us in this episode as our producer (and front end developer), Stephen Belyea talks about the importance of web accessibility.
New to CSS Grid? Heard of Grid but hesitant to ship it in the wild? Margaret and (our brand new co-host) Dan speak with designer Darren Galway about Grid’s new syntax, browser support, and getting it integrated into current projects.
What exactly is code review? Is it more than just telling somebody what’s wrong with their code? Of course it is! Join developers, Colin DeCarlo, Dan Mills, and Justin Buchanan, as they sit in with Margaret to drop comments, request changes, and give approvals.
Tired of testing? We aren’t! We’re focusing on what goes into testing the front end. Alex Barry, one of our senior devs, weighs in on the process, differences from back end, and helping you code better.
Good testing is tough. We’re talking testing in design, development, and the future of your app with two of our senior devs - Brad Brothers, and Colin DeCarlo.
