But there is one framework in particular that has not only exploded in popularity over the past few years (150,000+ stars on GitHub, anyone?) but has also solved many of problems inherent in other frameworks.
And that framework is Vue.
Good news: If you want to learn Vue, there are literally 1000s of options available.
But how do you know which one to pick?
How can you ensure the material is not only timely and complete, but also engaging?
One resource that stands out in particular is Maximilian Schwarzmuller’s Vue JS 2 – The Complete Guide (incl. Vue Router & Vuex).
For example, some of the topics Max covers include:
- What is VueJS?
- Why would you use Vue?
- How to set up a Development Environment & Workflow
- The basics like Syntax & templates
- Interacting with the DOM, including rendering lists and conditionally attaching & detaching elements
- Understanding components & using them
- Data binding with form inputs
- Directives, Filters and Mixins
- Animations & Transitions
- Creating an Single-Page-Application (SPA) with routing
- Improving State Management with Vuex
- Deploying a Vue app
In addition, you create three main projects, culminating with an enterprise-level project. These are:
One interesting production note: most lectures in this course are less than five minutes. Max makes topics super digestible.
About the Instructor
Maximilian Schwarzmuller is one of the highest-rated and most popular web development instructors on Udemy. Hailing from Germany, he is a knowledgeable and personable instructor with massive enrollment numbers. . .And for good reason.
Aside from “knowing his stuff,” Max incorporates decent projects in his courses so that you’re able to learn Vue and other tech tools in a hands-on way. He also includes lots of additional resources. For example, in Vue JS 2 – The Complete Guide (incl. Vue Router & Vuex), there are nearly 50 articles and over 110 downloadable resources.
Some people say Max has a thick accent. To help diminish this and add context to what he’s saying, Max maintains a physical presence on most lectures (via green screen) that lets the learner see what he’s saying.
If you want to learn Vue, Max’s course is a reliable, thorough, and project-inclusive option.
While you don’t go wild building 15 to 20 things, the projects you focus on implement a lot of learning material. With a few tweaks, the Stock Trader project in particular could be a nice addition to any frontend or full-stack web developer’s portfolio.
