How do we empower women in tech and equip them with the skills to help them become true leaders? One way is learning from others' successes and failures. Web GDEs—Debbie O'Brien, Julia Miocene, and Glafira Zhur—discuss the value of one to one mentoring and the impact it has made on their own professional and personal development.
Sharing components across multiple projects or with other developers seems to be the most complicated thing, yet it really shouldn’t be. With package registries such as npm or GitHub packages surely we should easily be able to share our components by publishing them as packages.
We have almost all been in a situation where we need to share a component between one app and another. Often we just decide to copy and paste it because it really is the quickest option. And sometimes it’s even ok, especially when it comes to those smaller components. But what if you wanted to share a big and more complex component?
For February’s Ask Engineers Anything event (aka office hours for our engineer community), I invited GitHub Star and community favorite, Debbie O’Brien, to share her experience as a woman in tech who is making a huge difference in the ecosystem.
Modules are functions that are called sequentially when booting Nuxt. The framework waits for each module to finish before continuing. In this way, modules can customize almost any aspect of your project. Nuxt modules can be incorporated into npm packages. This makes them easy to reuse across projects and to share with the community.
The first commit for Nuxt.js on Github was made on October 26th, 2016. Since then the Nuxt.js framework has grown from 2 creators in 2016 to having 10 full-time employees at the NuxtJS company, as well as the amazing Nuxt community with maintainers, ambassadors and contributors.
“I guess you could say I love the buzz of the stage but also because my talks help people learn something new. Now the virtual world is not the same at all, but what can we do? I don’t dislike it — I would just prefer to see and talk to people. I am very much a people’s person.”
The content module is a git files based headless CMS that provides powerful features when it comes to write blogs, documentation sites or just adding content to any regular website. In this post we will go through most of the benefits of this module and discover how we can create a blog with it.
With Nuxt components you can auto import your components really easily and even comes with support for dynamic imports otherwise known as lazy loading. That means you can just add your component in the template without having to add it to the script tag. This makes development much faster.
In our frontend applications, we often use APIs and third-party integrations which require us to use configuration data which is usually provided by environment variables. These variables should not be exposed to the frontend as the browser environment is accessible by all visitors.
The @nuxtjs/color-mode module is a cool way of adding dark mode to your site. But not only does it switch from dark to light but also any color theme (eg sepia mode). It even has auto detection so that it will choose the right mode depending on your system appearance.
Let’s dive into building some core main components that you might be tasked with when writing applications in Vue. Or, if you’re new to Vue, then these are definitely some great ways to get started understanding the more ‘common’ components that we might work with on a day-to-day basis. With that in mind, let’s get started right away with building a Counter, Dropdown and finally an Accordion with Vue!
Vue CLI is the fastest way to get your Vue project off the ground and it also comes with a really cool graphical user interface that allows you to easily modify your project’s configuration, run linters, search for and install plugins, analyse your bundle with webpack and more.
A year ago, I was in a very different place. I had come to the end of a very long journey and I just didn’t know what to do next. I didn’t really have the interest or the strength to continue and I believed that I didn’t have a purpose anymore. I was in a deep, dark hole and I didn’t know how to get out of it.
Each day we look forward to seeing our students around the world succeed as they grow and navigate within their chosen career path. We’re even more thrilled when our students become graduates and get a job in their dream role!
I was one of the first graduates from the Front-End Web Development course. I had played around with different online courses in coding before, but really found what I was looking for with OpenClassrooms. Fast forward 8 months, I had completed all projects and managed to get myself a job at Logitravel, a holiday booking site based in Palma, Mallorca.
