VueJS Talks Digest Q4 2017 — The latest recordings from VueJS meetups

The second VueJS digest is finally live here on MeetupFeed with all the recorded VueJS talks from the fourth quarter of 2017. The first VueJS digest has been quite popular—actually it has been the most popular digest of the last round, surpassing the number of viewers of both Angular and React digests. It will be interesting to see how it changed in 2018.

VueJS Talks Digest Q4 2017

What is MeetupFeed again?

I’m Tamas Abraham and MeetupFeed is my attempt to build the world’s largest organized dev talks database, the Netflix of the dev community with categorized recordings from meetups and conferences. The blog makes it easy to follow your global community, while the (beta) app enables browsing and searching talks painlessly—that’s why we started linking talks to the app instead of YouTube.  Please note, that the app is still very much in beta, but we are working hard on it with my good friends at CodingSans (a big thanks guys!). Feedbacks are very welcome in both email (tabraham at this domain) and on twitter.

In case you’d want to submit talks to MeetupFeed just drop the URLs in email (above) or tweet it to @meetupfeed and I’ll add it to the app and include it in the next digest.

You’ll learn what each technique is good for — and where each can trip you up. Whether you use Vue or React or even JQuery day-to-day, you’ll come away with a better understanding of how to leverage reactivity for understandability when understandability gets hard.

Atlanta Vue.js Meetup (Atlanta, GA)

Styling and Modularization in Vue.JS

Sean Reid (TorchCodeLab)

VueJS makes it easy to create a shared UI library, bringing the power and flexibility of Web Components with a low overhead and small learning curve. Leveraging the Single File Component architecture allows a developer to easily localize HTML, CSS, and JS logic to a single component. This model helps prevent many of the struggles that most developers have when dealing with global styling, component namespacing, and the dreaded “div soup.” The end result is cleaner, leaner, and more performant code, while maintaining a unified style across a variety of applications and developers.

Sean Reid is a front-end developer who recently moved to the Atlanta area after working with various tech startups in Athens, GA. He is passionate about user experiences, and creating products that focus on user engagement. Over the last 10 years he’s developed applications with tools ranging from jQuery, Backbone, Angular, and most recently, VueJS. He is an instructor at The Creative Circus, where he teaches the intermediate and advanced web development courses, training students in the fundamentals of the Javascript. He currently works full time at Codesigned, building Javascript applications for the Microsoft Sharepoint platform, as well as contracting with Hearst Autos to develop their in house pattern library and style guide, using VueJS.

Modern Web Components API with VueJS

Plone Conference Barcelona

Modern frontend development with VueJS

Tudor Barbu (Schibsted)

Browsing Hacker News or the #javascript hash tag on Twitter may leave one with the impression that there are only two options to build a Single Page Application: Angular and React. Each with its own strengths and weaknesses, with its own vocal community and the tech giant behind it. Each portraying the other side as the Sith.

Vue is the open source framework that brings a third alternative to the table, combining the strengths of both Angular and React while trying to weed out their weaknesses. The result is an easy to use, lightweight and versatile framework. In this talk we will explore Vue’s architecture, see how components interact among themselves, have a look at the event model and in the end, how to wrap everything together in a SPA using Webpack.
