This is my first post here at dev.to I've never done anything like this before so bare with me. I'm keen to try and get more involved in the community as I lurk a lot so here goes.
I'm a web developer as my day-to-day job primarily involves building HTML emails (everyone's favourite) and landing pages in different platforms. I'm looking to level up and move away from this work and do more 'dev' work. I'm currently learning VueJS (which I really like through a combination of pluralsight and tutorials) and am keen to learn more about its ecosystem currently in the process of moving my blog and portfolio (if you can even call it that...) from jekyll and github pages to Gridsome (as its Vue based I thought why not) and Netlify. I have moved my blog posts over and have a version up and running it was fairly straightforward as I found a couple of tutorials on getting started but GraphQL I know nothing about so not sure if it's worth me looking more into it?
It has made me realise how much vanilla JS I have forgotten as I don't get to use it in my day job so am trying to refresh all the basics as I know a bit of ES6 syntax and some array methods. I consider myself a beginner with Vue but I've built/am building a couple of different things with the Vue-CLI.
Does anyone use Vue a lot? Would you recommend perhaps learning something like React as well? I have read about it briefly bu8t it seems so alien to me but everyone seems to rave about it.
If anyone has any tips they would be appreciated.
