Vue for Everyone

What is Vue?ย 

What is Programming?

Telling the computer what to do

The Process of creating Software

Design and build an executable program by:

  • performing analysis,
  • generating algorithms,
  • profiling algorithms' accuracy and resource consumption,
  • implementing those algorithms in a chosen programming language.

And also while:

  • testing,
  • debugging,
  • maintaining source code,
  • implementing build systems,
  • managing derived artifacts and
  • documenting the process

Ok

Where does this comes from?

(Just a few historical milestone, not the whole History)

Having a career in tech does not automatically mean you have to code. Everyone is not meant to be an engineer.

3 MAIN layers of front end

HTML

HTML

  • Contains the content within an structure
  • Is semantic: givesย cues for the appearance of the document
  • Accessible: Different technologies read it and interpret it
  • It's important for SEO
  • Commonly is used with "template engines" within frameworks.

CSS

CSS

  • Styles y animations
  • "Layout"
  • Responsiveness
  • Cross Browser Compatibility
  • Commonly used with CSS frameworks and JS frameworks.

Javascript

JS

  • Logic related to theย UI.
  • User interaction... Examples:
    • Complex animations,
    • Form validations,
    • React to events in the application,
    • Sync data from and with UI,
    • Retrieve or send data to servers.
  • Commonly used with JS frameworks.

Recap

๐Ÿ”Ž Demo ๐Ÿ”

Why using a JS Framework?

  • Improve code reusability.
  • Create guidelines to treat data in an app.
  • Help us maintain code across teams.
  • ...

ย 

The biggest, by far, improvement these frameworks provide is having the ability to implement UIs that are guaranteed to be in sync with the internal state of the application

Alberto Gimeno

If UI frameworks didn't exist, we would be creating them: automate repeated tasks.

JS Frameworks

  • React,
    • Usually + Redux
  • Angular,
    • ย Necessarily + RxJS + TS (TypeScript)
  • Vue
    • Usually + Vuex
  • Others:
    • Svelte, Preact, Ember, Stencil, Polymer, Inferno, Aurelia...

Which one to choose?

CTOs!

system quality attributes ("ilities")

  • functionality,
  • debuggability,
  • scalability,
  • securability,
  • testability,
  • maintainability,
  • performance
  • ...

It is a View focused library for building user interfacesย 

Simplest Vue.js example

<div id="simplest-example">
  <h1>{{ whatever }}</h1>
</div>

<script>
new Vue({
ย  el: '#simplest-example',
ย  data: {
ย  ย  whatever: 'Hello world',
ย  }
})
</script>

Components

Vue components extend basic HTML elements to encapsulate reusable code.

<div id="app">
  <button-clicked></button-clicked>
</div>

<script>
Vue.component(
  'button-clicked',
  {
    data: () => ({
      count: 0,
    }),
    template: `
      <button
        v-on:click="onClick"
      >
        Clicked {{ count }} times
      </button>
    `,
    methods: {
      onClick() {
        this.count += 1;
      }
    },
  }
);

new Vue({
  el: '#app',
});
</script>

Single File Components

With Vue.js (and the power of modern building tools)

  • we have really powerful applications ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ
  • real good, real quick ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿพ
  • that are flexible and performant ๐Ÿš€

Personal Statement

  • It super friendly with other libraries.
  • It is ergonomic,
  • easier to learn than others,
  • and to understand.
  • Has a great community.
