I am continually trying to improve my coding skills and learn new techniques and methodologies. Part of that is to also keep abreast of new languages. I have been closely watching the rise of Vue.js and decided I wanted to learn it. So I started researching.
I looked at many different sources to get learning material and there are plenty. But it seemed like they all just explained how to do specific aspects of the language. I wanted to learn how to create a full application that was meaningful and applicable to the real world. But I couldn’t find anywhere that gave me what I wanted. So I decided to create something myself.
This course will detail the strategy, design and implementation of an entire application. From start to finish. I will:
- analyse the data I want to capture and detail how to create a MySQL database to store the data
- create a PHP-driven API that allows full CRUD (Create, Read, Update and Delete) functionality against the database
- explain and implement the routing strategy for the API using a .htaccess file
- create the shell Vue.js application
- create pages and components that call the API to retrieve and update data
- style the application in a sensible and easy-to-navigate manner that you might expect from any real-world application
I hope you will enjoy the course as much I enjoyed creating it. But above all, I hope it teaches you something new and demonstrates that creating applications can be enjoyable.
I look forward to providing you this information and please comment below if you have thoughts about the course or any questions.
I hope to see you again when the course lands very soon.
