Announcing Vue.js Core Team Summit #1; Vue.js Roadtrip videos;

I’m very happy to announce that along with several other Vue core team members we will be organising a free community meetup in Wrocław, Poland on Thursday next week (August 2nd). The meetup is to be called the Vue.js Core Team Summit and we intent to organise those meetups whenever we’re gathering for the Vue sprint.

Wondering what’s a Vue sprint? It’s a special week where members of the core team gather together in one place and work on different Vue tools and libraries like Vue-Devtools.

I will let you know about all the things we will be working on next week!

Building "Renderless" Vue Components

Recursion is something every developer learns about at some point in their education. The second step is learning when to use it.
