Building web apps with Vue.js
Build highly interactive websites quickly and easily
In this three-hour hands-on training course, expert Raju Gandhi walks you through building a full application using Vue. You'll start with the basics before moving on to writing custom components, using Vuex for state management, and using the Vue router to enable routing within your application. You'll leave with the experience you need to get quickly started on your next project in Vue or dive into an existing code base.
