Proven patterns for building Vue apps

In this workshop, we'll cover everything you need to know to get started building world-class Vue applications. Topics will include configuring Webpack for single-file components, setting up the most advanced workflows currently possible, how to organize (and reorganize) increasingly complex applications, and more.

Application state with Vuex

As an application grows, you will notice that components will share common code and state. Eventually as the application grows it can become more important to manage this state carefully, to improve maintainability, predictability and application flow. Vuex, is inspired by elm. It is not only a library but a state management pattern. Introducing these patterns, improves the overall application flow and creates a centralised state. However, it is easy to go overboard with state managment; thus we will look at a full range of best practices to ensure you can make the most of Vuex. Schedule: What is Vuex? Looking at state management patterns Determining application state from local state Using Actions, Mutations and Getters Modularising a store Composing actions (Promises and Async/Await) Avoiding common pitfalls

Deciphering You

It’s one thing to understand how to use a framework, and quite another to understand how it works beneath the surface. In this talk we’ll take a deep dive under the covers to begin to understand how Evan You (and the core team) put it all together.

How We Do Vue At GitLab

Based on a few of <a href="https://about.gitlab.com/2017/11/09/gitlab-vue-one-year-later/">our articles</a>. We talk about what we've learned in 1 year of using Vue in production. How we mix in Vuex, webpack, and other tools. How we write tons of code and get from idea to production so quickly using VueJS as our workhorse. How we get crap done at GitLab.

Vue in Motion

Learning a JavaScript framework can look intimidating if you come from a traditional design background. But Vue has some of the best features for designing with motion. Come see how to translate your motion design into Vue-powered prototypes!

Serverless Functions and Vue.js

Serverless is the most clickbaity title for an actually interesting thing. Despite the name, Serverless does not mean you’re not using a server, rather, the promise of Serverless is to no longer have to babysit a server. Scaling is done for you, you’re billed only for what you use. In this session, we’ll cover some key use cases for these functions within a Vue.js application: we’ll accept payments with stripe, we’ll gather geolocation data from Google Maps, and more! We’ll make it all work with Vue and Nuxt seamlessly, simplifying how to leverage this paradigm to be a workhorse for your application.

vue-rx

Vue.js ships with a built-in reactive system to help easily manage data and state throughout your app, but RxJS streams allow you to control complex async situations through streams. This lecture will cover how Vue.js integrates with RxJS and walks through the common problems taking this approach can solve.

Create an Engaging Native Mobile App with Vue and NativeScript

You have a beautiful web site built with Vue? Great! Now you need a mobile app to engage your users even further. Or, better yet, you need to offer different, yet complimentary functionality, while retaining shared code between your web site and mobile app. Welcome to the beautiful world of Vue and NativeScript, which, paired together on the web and on mobile, make for a great user experience.

Agile Design Systems in Vue

Style Guides & Pattern Libraries are great tools for documenting the relationships between code and UX, but beautiful docs are only half the battle. We don’t all have dedicated teams and budgets to build a centralized system. How can we build patterns into our code, using Vue components and pre-processors to iterate and automate living design systems in an agile and integrated process?

Vue & TypeScript: Up and Running

One of TypeScript's goals is to make sure that JavaScript users of all communities can use the language. Over the last year, the TypeScript team has put effort in to making TypeScript & Vue work together much more seamlessly. Come find out a bit about that work, and how you can benefit from TypeScript today!

A React Point of Vue

At a glance, React and Vue are like two peas in a pod. They are lightweight component-based libraries for building user interfaces and can be used fairly interchangeably to build scalable web applications. Though they are noticeably different in terms of syntax, their key differences lie in their respective ways of thinking. As a React developer learning Vue, adapting to the “Vue way of doing things” is a challenge that requires a sound understanding of the philosophy behind Vue. In this talk, we will examine the nuances between the two frameworks and cover common mistakes that React developers make when switching from React to Vue.

A Short Synopsis of Vue Storybook

Building and documenting a component library at your company can be a huge hassle, but is a great way to keep your code consistent and clean among all of your projects. Storybook and Vue take most of the pain out of this, and allow you to develop a set of core components and document them in no time!

Prototyping with Vue Single File Component

With a compact templating syntax and rich support for major web languages, Vue Single File Component is ideal for sketching out UI components, animation, interaction prototypes and data visualization. In this talk, I present a mini Vue SFC based framework that prescribes setup, languages and coding styles in exchange for the best prototyping experience.
