Overall I got a lot out of this book, The author is clear and concise. Having purchased many templates over the years, some were basic some were really advanced, bending those to what I needed was a pain, this is a great book for Vue.js in general. If I had read this book before building cloud front ends for over three years It would have saved me some serious frustrations. A good reference book to have around, glad I had the chance to review it.

This book is a "must-have" if you want to create Real-Web full scaled Applications! The author covers almost everything you would want to know about Vue. There are chapters about testing, deploying, and even dockerizing your Vue app! The book is easy to follow and provides excellent explanations for all the fundamental concepts. Most importantly that it covers the latest Vue version (Vue 3) and all the latest updates! Of course, each chapter goes with nice examples of code. Overall impressions are very good. This is so far the best book about Vue that I've read so far. I can definitely recommend it to everybody who is willing to learn Vue

This book would be a great place to begin or continue learning about frontend development with Vue. It is a great starting point for beginners and can definitely teach intermediate developers a lot about the framework, such as Automated Testing for the framework, deployment of a Vue application, and generally important information about state management, routing and working with APIs in the framework. It isn't too technical, which makes the reading easy to follow and understand, and by the end you will definitely have learned how to develop the major parts of a large-scale frontend application. I would recommend the book as solid material for Vue 3 and suggest that if you decide to get this book, follow along through the example applications on your own laptop or computer so that the material is better understood!

I received this book as a reviewer copy and what I enjoyed the most about the book was the ease of the read. I have a hard time reading very technical jargon and this book broke things down into simple and easy-to-understand definitions and steps. It has definitely helped expand and deepen my knowledge.
