Here is a section by section breakdown of what this course will cover to take you from Zero to Vue Mastery:

We will start from the very beginning by teaching you Vue basics and fundamentals. We then dive into advanced topics so you can make good decisions on architecture and tools on any of your future Vue.js projects.

You're going to love Vue if you are new to front end frameworks or even if you come from a React or Angular background!

  1. FUNDAMENTALS - Learn about the fundamentals of Vue, such as computed properties, methods, and watchers. With just the fundamentals, you'll be able to manipulate the document with events, binding, and conditional rendering. You'll also learn how to debug an application with the official Vue Developer Tools.

  2. PROJECT: PERSPECTIVE PLAYGROUND - Build your first project by creating a CSS perspective playground. This will give us an opportunity to reinforce a lot of the fundamental concepts we learned in the previous section by developing a tool for visualizing how CSS properties can manipulate the perspective of an element.

  3. BEYOND THE FUNDAMENTALS - Dive into the inner workings of the Vue framework. How do JavaScript frameworks add reactivity? How does Vue compile templates into virtual DOM objects? This will give you insight into how Vue is able to deliver a framework for modern applications. We'll also talk about lifecycle hooks and components.

  4. LEARNING ABOUT THE TOOLS - We'll take a step back from Vue to talk about some tools for developing applications. Throughout your career, you'll need to deal with the tooling that helps us develop applications (i.e., Vite, Sass, PostCSS, ESLint). We'll talk about how these tools are configured and why they're necessary.

  5. ADVANCED COMPONENTS - In this section, we'll scaffold a Vue project with Vite. The goal of Vue is to make the development experience as smooth and painless as possible. Vue can help us with scaffolding a project, configuring tools, and running a server. This alleviates a lot of the more tedious tasks of web development. We'll be able to jump straight into components to see how we can architect an application with components by using props, emitting events, slots, and dynamically rendering content.

  6. TRANSITIONS & ANIMATIONS - Learn how to add some pizzaz to an app by adding transitions and animations. Animations can breathe life into any application. They can also improve user experience by giving feedback to the user about their actions. We'll discuss how animations can be achieved with CSS and JavaScript. Both are supported in Vue. We'll even talk about the latest Web Animations API.

  7. PROJECT: QUIZ APP - You're going to take everything you've learned thus far to develop a quiz application. Quizzes are a great way to engage users in almost any industry.

  8. MASTER PROJECT: INTRODUCTION TO PINIA (UPDATED FROM VUEX) - Finally start working on the master project of this Vue course, which is a music application (think Spotify)! Upload, manage and listen to music without interruption. We'll use TailwindCC to help us with designing a beautiful modern application. It's the new kid on the block that's being embraced by the front-end dev community. Then we'll learn about state management by using the official state library called Pinia (updated from Vuex).

  9. MASTER PROJECT: FORM VALIDATION - Perform form validation to prevent invalid data from being submitted. Accidents happen. It's our job to make sure to check for mistakes. You'll then learn how to enforce rules for various scenarios.

  10. MASTER PROJECT: AUTHENTICATION - Here you'll begin authentication and registration. Users will be able to login immediately after registering for an account. We'll be using Firebase as a backend solution for managing and verifying users.

  11. MASTER PROJECT: ROUTING - Handle routing with the Vue Router library. Underneath, the router library is using the history API to handle navigation. It allows us to switch between pages without refreshing the assets. We'll look at how we can use this library to help us guard routes, add meta fields, and customize the appearance of our site based on the current route.

  12. MASTER PROJECT: UPLOADING FILES - Start uploading files to Firebase. It's vital that we validate files with Firebase. We don't want users to accidentally download a malicious file when listening to music. We'll cover how to enforce validation with Firebase rules. After doing so, we'll store additional information in a database. We'll even cover how to implement a fallback solution in case drag n drop is not available.

  13. MASTER PROJECT: PLAYING MUSIC - Start making the audio player functional. You'll implement basic features such as playing/pausing, scrubbing and displaying the current duration. We'll also make the rest of the site functional by allowing users to submit comments, browse music, and sort data.

  14. MASTER PROJECT: DIRECTIVES - Learn about writing custom directives. Directives are attributes that can extend an element with additional properties and methods. We'll cover the basics and look at advanced concepts such as modifiers and arguments.

  15. MASTER PROJECT: INTERNATIONALIZATION - Add internationalization to a project for translating a project across multiple languages. There are different ways to translate a message. Some messages need formatting or pluralization. We can also translate numbers (i.e., currencies). We'll look at how to switch between languages with a few lines of code.

  16. MASTER PROJECT: PWA - The web has shifted to a mobile-first approach. In this section, you'll add PWA (Progressive Web App) features to make your app mobile-friendly by using Workbox to cache files and persist data with Firebase.

  17. MASTER PROJECT: OPTIMIZATIONS - Make some final optimizations before shipping your app to production. There are various techniques and tools we'll look at to help us fine-tune our app. We can use Vite to chunk files and auto-register components. We'll add some features for helping the user understand the app is processing a request for a friendly user experience.

  18. MASTER PROJECT: DEPLOYMENT - In this section, you'll get to deploy your app to Vercel with a single command! Quick and easy.

  19. MASTER PROJECT: TESTING - We'll discuss how you can test a project with Vitest. Unit testing allows us to test a feature in isolation. It's the most common type of test you'll write. There are a few problems with testing that can be resolved with mocking. By mocking code, we'll be able to isolate features and test them. Afterward, we'll move onto snapshot testing and E2E testing to bring everything together.

  20. COMPOSITION API - We'll discuss the latest feature introduced in Vue called the composition API. It's a different way of building components. While Vue provides a simple API for writing components, there are some shortcomings. The composition API resolves these issues. We'll talk about why you would want to use the composition API and understand why it was introduced.

I've been using Vue professionally for a year now but I've learnt so much already, been able to re-enforce some concepts and pick up new knowledge and I'm only halfway through (yeah, I've been hooked!). Great job by Luis on this one.

Elvis Ximenes

Thanks for the introduction to Vue! The whole course layout and the analogy used in the comparison between Angular, React and Vue helped shape my understanding of those frameworks.

Elvis Ximenes

Great course with the most complete main project out of all the popular Vue courses online. Options API is covered in great detail and the same goes for Router and Vuex. All the official core team plugins are taught as well.

Can I use the course projects in my portfolio?

Yes, you’d be crazy not to in our slightly biased opinion! All projects are downloadable and ready to use the minute you join.

Many of our students tell us the projects they built while following along with our courses were what got them interviews and because they built the projects themselves, they could confidently explain and walk through their work during the interview.

You know what that means? Job offer!

Can I download the videos?

Definitely. You can download any and all lessons for personal use. We do everything we can to make learning easy, fun and accessible. Whether that’s on your commute, on a flight or just when you have limited access to good WiFi.
