Creating large, monolithic SPAs is all the rage, but not all solutions need a single page application (SPA). Sometimes all you need is a small sprinkle of JavaScript and jQuery. At times however, it is better to Improve parts of web projects with islands of SPA functionality but the complexity of Angular can make you yearn for a modern framework that is simple and straightforward. That's where VueJS can save the day. This session will cover when and how to use JavaScript with a bit of jQuery. It will also demonstrate how to build a simple page using VueJS and then talk about using it in larger projects without having to use bundling and transpilers if you don't want to.

You will learn:

  • What options you have when enhance web pages
  • How SPAs may be overkill for some situations
  • What is VueJS and why it is a good option for smaller, user–centric pages
