Conference news for the next 3 months; RFC process for Vue 3.0 starts now;

Hey there,

As the work on Vue 3.0 goes forward we reached the point where the first of many RFCs (request for comment) has been created. The RFC process is here to provide a consistent way for introducing new features and breaking changes to the framework core in cooperation with the community.

This RFC is specifically about scoped-slots and how they should look like in 3.0. If you’re interested – take a look.

The biggest conferences of 2018 are back for the 2nd editions! In February, we will see each other back in Amsterdam for Vue.js Amsterdam. Then in March, the official VueConfUS takes place in Tampa, Florida.

What you might have not known, is that just a month later, on 12th of April, there will be VueDay in Verona, Italy. If you’d like to speak there is still a chance – the CFP ends on 1st February.

Cheers, — Damian Dulisz
