#VueConfUS is happening! 🎺 , Vue.js v2.5.17-beta.0 released, Renderless Components tutorial, in-depth look into Vue-CLI 3 and more!

So... VueConf US is happening right now! For me, that’s probably the biggest FOMO moment of my life. No worries though – we will let you know once the video recordings are published.

If I had to pick one article that you should read this week it would be the one by Adam Wathan about Renderless Components. It is an in-depth tutorial on how to push the idea of scoped slots even further to create incredibly flexible components without enforcing any layout at all. Must-read!
