Snowdog Frontend Team was pleased to take part in The world’s first Official Vue.js Conference which took place in Wroclaw. We had been all interested in this front-end framework before, but nobody assumed the event would take place in Poland.
During two inspiring days of the conference, experienced Vue.js developers shared their knowledge, tools and code:
…and many more great topics about PWA, testing, scaling, Firebase integration, tuning performance or even writing a book about Vue. There were also two truly great lightning talks sessions and discussion panel with Evan You, Pine Wu, Sean Larkin, Sarah Drasner.
We wondered how Vue compares to other front-end frameworks, for example Angular.
Most of the people said, they moved to Vue.js from Angular because they were not satisfied and somehow tired of it. Of course there were also some other more specific project and technical related issues. What Evan said was that Vue has the same qualities as React and Angular, but brings you happiness and you need to try this solution by yourself.
Not surprising, but promising, the feedback among Vue enthusiasts was very positive. Besides many technical features which improve performance, usability and quality of created apps, coding in Vue offers interesting possibilities in web development and is simply a great front-end fun.
The atmosphere was really good, everything was well scheduled. Frequent coffee breaks let us talk with developers who use Vue.js in their projects and ask about their thoughts, experience and motivation for working with this framework. We also had the opportunity to meet members of popular open-source projects (such as webpack). The fantastic vibe during the event reminded us about Meet Magento in Poland, the conference we can’t wait for.
The framework created in 2013 as a side project has become a serious, mature player and Github’s second most starred project in a front-end frameworks area, beating it’s great Google’s rival – Angular. It is incredible how quickly it grows and how many companies migrate their current stacks to Vue.
We had two fascinating and well-consumed front-end days, fortunately we didn’t miss it. Thanks for a great VueConf! Now we’re waiting for the next edition, put us on the list! Keeping fingers crossed so that it takes place in Poland too! ☺
