I’m very happy to let you know that Ben Hong aka bencodezen has recently joined the Vue.js core team! Rumors say, he’s actually a blue-scaled dragon that escaped Hogwarts during the Triwizard Tournament, but then again what does a muggle like me know? 🤷♂️
Congratulations Ben! 🐉

Enjoy the Vue – New podcast with some familiar voices!
Here’s a brand new Vue.js podcast. Interviews, discussions and more, brought to you by Chris Fritz, Ben Hong, Ari Clark, and Elizabeth Fine. Definitely something to keep an ear on.
Quasar v1.8.0 released!

Jeffrey Biles has been producing free Vue.js screen-casts for a while now and just now he released his VueScreencasts platform, where you can watch all of his tutorials (over 19h) for free!
Improved accessible routing in Vue.js
Here’s a great write-up on how to improve the accessibility when using front-end routing. The author also links to accessible-app – a project that aims to collect accessible patterns and demo implementations (in Vuejs!) to certain frontend problems like modals or dropdowns. You can also contribute new patterns to it!
Leverage `provide/inject` to avoid prop drilling in Vue.js
A quick tutorial on how to build support for dynamic theming using the provide/inject API. Although this API is generally not recommended for common usage in applications in Vue 2.x, this might change in Vue 3.0 given the incoming tweaks it receives. Definitely something worth picking up right now.
Editable interfaces with Vue.js and Tailwindcss
Being able to edit (content and design) a "live" website could be considered the dream of many marketing specialists. But that’s easier said than done. Here’s a lengthy article and a live demo on how you can build something like this yourself!
