Join Benjamin Hong for a hands-on deep dive into Vue.js. You’ll start from a bare-bones HTML5 template and build three applications from the ground up. Along the way, you’ll explore Vue.js key concepts and learn how it compares to other frameworks like Angular and React.

When he’s not learning about some new technology, tinkering on side projects, or helping to co-organize meetups in the area, you can usually find him on some adventure somewhere exploring the seemingly endless things that life has to offer, whether it’s a new restaurant, board game, book, podcast, or {{insert something you’re passionate about here}}.
