Vue.js Roadtrip Paris slides, Vue-Storefront release 1.0 is here and more!

A great week for the Vue ecosystem! Vue-Storefront, the largest eCommerce-related Vue open-source project I know about, has hit the 1.0 version. This means it is now officially stable and production ready. That’s great to hear since I personally believe that having a PWA-based front app might be the next big thing for online stores.

Also, Ilkwon Sim has released a repo that includes a dozen useful Vue-patterns and tricks that can be used when you just need that quick look at the reference of things like scoped slots syntax.

As you might know, Vue.js Roadtrip Paris happened last week and we got 4 presentations for you to check out!

Rental cars, Destiny’s Child and error handling with Vue.js

Error handling is a topic that’s not really all that popular even though it’s extremely important. Maybe that’s because we – as developers – like to believe that our code just works?

It allows you to create components that can catch all errors inside child components and more.
