🎆 Happy New Year! 🎉 New Nuxt.js version and tons of articles!


have you missed me? As you might have noticed (though I hope you did not and have had some relaxing, off-work holidays instead), I have been on a holiday break from the newsletter. But now I’m back!

As for the news – there’s a new version of Nuxt.js – v2.11.0. Also, the results from the State of JavaScript 2019 are here. Once again Vue scores very high when it comes to developer satisfaction.
