We live in a time of booming AR (and VR). We wanted to talk to someone who’s worked with it and would know a thing or two about the subject. Then we found Yuliya – also known as the walking wizard of ARCore. In this episode, she teaches Kaush and Donn about ARCore, the differences between AR/VR, the fundamental building blocks of ARCore, some of the newer concepts introduced like Sceneform. An action packed episode to say the least. Listen on !

130: Sunsetting ReactNative at Airbnb with Gabriel Peal – Part 2

In this episode, we resume our conversation with Airbnb’s Gabriel Peal. If you haven’t listened to part 1, you really really should go back and do that. In that episode, we kicked it off by first trying to understand the goals and the story behind why React Native was chosen as the code sharing technology/tool.

After two years, 220 screens, and 120,000 lines of javascript, Gabriel tells us why they’re moving away from React Native.

129: Sunsetting ReactNative at Airbnb with Gabriel Peal – Part 1

If you haven’t heard, Airbnb has decided to move away from React Native. Friend of the show Gabriel Peal wrote an in-depth series of blog posts about this. We had so many questions around this that we asked him to come on the show and he graciously accepted to answer some of our questions.

It’s always a pleasure listening to his insights and this episode is no exception!
