Building Web Apps with Vue.js

I know what you are thinking. Fantastic, another JavaScript framework that is going to be difficult to learn and obsolete in a month, sign me up! It's true, the world is being crushed under the weight of JavaScript frameworks but Vue.js is a worthy addition to the fray of front-end framework. Vue.js is flexible, progressive, fast, light, and best of all easy to learn. Vue is highly modular, discarding the "kitchen sink " feel of other frameworks for a "pick what you need" approach. We'll discuss what makes Vue.js so awesome, deep dive into features and metrics, and see how it compares to other frameworks such as Angular and React.
