How I learned VueJS

About me

I have been a Java developer for over 10 years. Oh sorry, am Ozozahuwa by name. I have been writing java and javascript from infantry, i guess thats why i found it difficult moving to javascript frameworks

Why I wanted to learn VueJS

Vanilla javascript is good and sweet i must say. But truth be told as much you have ultimate power to do what you want to do, it takes an ample amount of doing it. And this is where Frameworks comes in handle scaffolding alot of setup process while you focus on your logic. This is why i took the hard decision to learn a framework

After scouting through the Javascript Universe of available Frameworks and looking deep down through their internals i came to terms with VueJS as a framework of choice. Owing to the simple reason that it brings together the goods of the two biggest frameworks AngularJS an ReactJS while improving on their weaknesses.

How I approached learning VueJS

I already have a strong command of Javascript, starting VueJS was easy. Frankly speaking, Books are nice and i read alot, when it comes to learning a technology i prefer to learn by doing, especially with the aid Videos.

Thats how i took VueJS down, by using Project based Video Courses online. it was fun all the way as VueJS is a fun filled Framework for Web Development.

You are definitely bound to face some challenges when learning something newly. VueJS wasn't an exception. Despite my In-depth knowledge of Javascript, I find difficult understanding State Management at first but after a series of hands on exercises i came to terms with it.

Key takeaways

It enables me divide my app into several independent component which comes together to give birth to a more than efficient, scallable and highly maintainable application
