Intro to Vue.js: The Frontend Framework for Everyone!

Did you know that Vue.js was the most-starred github repo for the past 2 years?

It beat out React (barely) and Angular (handily) for developer love in 2016 and 2017.

(source: https://risingstars.js.org/2017/en/#section-all)

Does that mean you will like it too? Not necessarily. Software is art and developers have preferences. But you at least have to be familiar with it. And if you haven't taken the time yet, now is the time!

Come learn basic Vue.js concepts through live code. I'll explain the foundational Vue.js directives and what they do under the covers. Follow along in my repo and run it on your own machine if you like. I'll go slow. I'll make sure you understand. You can ask questions.

If you're new to Vue, you'll come away understanding the basics Vue. If you're an Angular or React user, you'll have an appreciation of the similarities and differences. If you want, you'll have enough knowledge to use it in your project.

If you've done anything with Vue, you'll probably get bored.
