Course Overview
Hello everyone. My name is Daniel Stern, and welcome to my brand-new course, Vue. js: The Big Picture. I'm a Pluralsight author and respected open-source developer. Now you may have heard of Vue, the amazing new tool for making web applications, but did you know that with over 100, 000 stars on GitHub, Vue is growing faster than React or Angular? That means learning Vue is a great idea for anyone whose career is in the fast and rapidly changing world of web development. In this course, we're going to get an overview of Vue, understanding what its features are and where those features are most useful. Some of the major topics we'll include are Vue's capabilities, as well as its limitations, using Vue to prototype applications, comparing Vue to Angular and React, of course, and the interesting libraries of the Vue ecosystem. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with basic JavaScript and HTML. From here, you should be ready to start your journey towards being a Vue pro with great courses available at Pluralsight. I hope you'll join me on this exciting journey to learn Vue with Vue: The Big Picture, here at Pluralsight.

What Is Vue.js?
Hello and welcome to Vue. js: Big Picture. I'm Daniel Stern, also known as the Code Whisperer, and throughout this short course, I'll be walking you through everything that you need to know to become a Vue expert. While we won't be diving into detail in any of these topics, this will give you the context you need to pursue a full Vue education if you decide it's something you're interested in. Don't forget, if you want to get in touch, you can follow me on Twitter @danieljackstern. So what will we be discussing throughout this course? First, we'll understand exactly what Vue is, and we'll learn if it can help your business achieve its goals, whatever they may be. We'll get an overview of the core features that Vue developers have to know. We're not actually going to learn the ins and outs of all these features, but we will learn what they are. We'll also learn about the specific challenges Vue can help you solve. So if you have a particular coding problem down at the workplace, we'll learn if Vue is something that could help you with that or if not. In addition, we'll try to understand Vue relative to frameworks that we might already be familiar with. We'll compare it to a couple of frameworks like React and Angular and gain a bit more context on what it's all about. Finally, I'll advise you on some further resources that I think would be great for you to continue learning more about Vue when you complete this short course. In the next clip, we'll discuss the process of creating business solutions using Vue.
