Vue.js is a popular, modern JavaScript framework for developing interactive web applications. With its third major version, Vue 3, it has become even more powerful and easier to use.

During this workshop, we will cover the basics of Vue 3 and learn how to develop web applications using the framework. In fact, we will build one coherent application from scratch, step by step, and learn the most important concepts of Vue 3 along the way.

This workshop is a hands-on workshop.

Instead of the typical workshop flow, you will work through the exercises before I'll teach you the theory and background. This way, you will learn the most important concepts of Nuxt.js by doing and not by listening or copying lines of code from the slides.

After each exercise, we will go through the solution and theory together, reinforcing what you have learned.


  • Create Vue applications from scratch
