Managing State in Vue.js with Vuex Course

About This Course

Vue.js, while relatively new to the scene, is growing in popularity quite quickly. It is relatively easy to get started with, but for anything non-trivial, it quickly becomes apparent that more powerful state management is needed in order to keep shared data synchronized throughout the application. Vuex is one of the possible solutions and is the most popular among Vue.js developers.

Vuex was inspired by Redux, a popular state management library for React, but is designed to integrate more seamlessly into Vue.js applications since it was created by the same developers and was intended only for use with Vue.js.

This course, Managing State in Vue.js with Vuex, teaches how to leverage Vuex the right way to add more maintainability and readability to the state management for Vue.js applications.

I liked that we could determine what to learn, no time was wasted.
Javascript Developer, RetailMeNot
I had trouble understanding a certain concept, and told the instructor that I just didn't get it. While the class was busy with an exercise, he sat down with me, gave me material to read, and made sure I understood it before I moved on. I really appreciated that.
JavaScript Developer, PayPal
The instructor has a great attitude and pacing. Amazing how much he knows about JS!
