Vue Made Easy: Introduction.

"Vue Made Easy" is a series of blog posts created to help beginners understand the fundamentals and best practices of VueJS (the popular Javascript framework) and also build dynamic and compelling products.

Often times, beginners find it daunting to locate resources that will help them learn things they need to know online. Maybe there is one, and I didn't look in the right place. "Who knows?" Imagine having an article that features everything from the fundamentals to the details and a mini-project that features everything you need to get to the top. Wow, "just imagine". 

I used to be someone who loved to learn through books, articles, and technical documentation. If I didn't get what I needed, I would eventually resort to videos on YouTube or Udemy. This is why I created this series, due to the difficulties in finding these resources that contain everything you need to know from start to finish. It's based on everything I have learned so far in Vue JS and hopefully all you need to know to get started. I'm looking forward to sharing it with you.

This series is written in a friendly and approachable tone, with a focus on making Vue.js easy to understand and use, even for beginners. It takes a step-by-step approach, starting with the basics of Vue.js and gradually introducing more advanced concepts and techniques.

It covers a wide range of topics, including setting up a development environment, working with Vue components and templates, using Vue directives, passing data through props, routing, authentication, building self-contained components, and integrating external libraries and APIs. I will also provide practical tips and advise on how to optimize Vue.js applications for performance and scalability.

Whether you are a seasoned web developer or a complete novice, "Vue.js Made Easy" is a great resource for anyone who wants to learn how to use Vue.js to create dynamic, responsive, and engaging applications.
