What You Will Build 🔥

Personal portfolio/blog project

This project strips away all of the complexities/build tools etc and focuses purely on Vue.js.

Taking a simple HTML file, we add the Vue library to not only learn the core features but also to see how easily we can add it to an existing website.

Countdown App

Once we have a solid grounding it is time for project 2. This is an event countdown app that introduces you to a more sophisticated setup using the Vue CLI.

While building the project, you will learn so much more including watchers, computed properties, forms, conditional rendering, and teleport to name a few.

Dashboard App

Project 3 is a dashboard application with multiple pages, making use of dynamic components.

We discover different ways of passing data in Vue.js including provide/inject and the different types of slots available.

Creative Cards App

The last project is a card editing application. We begin with a library of greeting cards the user can select, and then once chosen, an edit screen will allow the user to edit the text, images, and overall styling too.

This project will introduce the new Vue 3 Composition API, how to organize your code into re-usable files, routing, lazy loading, cloud functions, image uploading, and using a database.

Who is this for?

Web Dev beginner?

This course is beginner friendly, but if you have little / zero web dev experience, I recommend you learn some basics first.

HTML, CSS, with a little Javascript will give you a good foundation.

New to Vue.js?

Never used Vue before? No problem, this course will guide you from the first steps to a competent Vue.js developer.

Vue is a great starting point in the world of front end frameworks / libraries and will build on your existing HTML,CSS & Javascript skills.

Vue.js ninja??

Probably not for you unless you want to get up to speed on the latest Vue 3 features.

Or just want a course to go through and try out some new projects.

Questions?

  • How do I take the course?

    The course is video format. Sign up, and follow along with the videos!

  • How long do I have to take course?

  • I do things a different way to you, why does your way suck?

    There is usually many ways to do things in coding. This is just my way. Have a different approach? Great!

  • Why Vue?

    Vue is awesome 😀 It is easy to get going with (as far as JS frameworks go). Fast, performant, scalable and enjoyable for developers.
