Vue - The Road to Enterprise cover book

Vue is awesome and it's so easy to learn! But what next?

Hi, I’m Thomas Findlay, 5-star rated JavaScript consultant, technical writer, and mentor.

For the past few years, I have extensively worked with hundreds of new and seasoned developers, helping them learn Vue, build complex features, and make their applications maintainable and scalable.

On multiple occasions, I heard there are a lot of resources for beginners, but not for more advanced developers, and thus a lot of developers wonder, what next?

This book should be the answer to that question.

Performance Optimisation

Is your application slow? Are users leaving your site? No one likes to wait, especially for sluggish apps, so make sure, that yours is blazing fast. Explore multiple ways and patterns on improving and optimising performance, and decreasing the final bundle size. The less code the better!

Who is this book for?


"Vue - The Road To Enterprise" is not a beginners guide to Vue.js. It will not teach you how to get started with it. To make the most out of this book, you should have at least an intermediate knowledge of JavaScript, Vue.js, and the ecosystem around it such as Vue CLI, Vue Router and Vuex. You should also be comfortable with using a command line interface.

The book is written with a very hands-on approach. I strongly believe that the best way to learn to code is by practice. There are a lot of code examples, that you should follow along, and play with yourself to gain a deeper understanding of the concept behind. You can do it either from scratch, or by using the Companion App. If you are looking for a book to read on the go, or simply away from your PC, then it might not be the best book for you.

This book is a great resource for:

  • check-icon

    Developers with prior Vue knowledge who want to upscale their Vue proficiency and learn how to create enterprise-ready applications.

  • check-icon
    Developers and teams who want to quickly get on board with best practices, patterns, and tips to incorporate in their new or existing Vue projects.
  • check-icon
    Developers who are looking for career progression as a Vue.js developer.

The only advanced Vue book you need, to start building
large-scale and performant applications

Companion App

Together with this book, you can get the Companion App that showcases more detailed working code examples, so you don’t have to write the code yourself. It has enhanced code samples available for various chapters and sections, so if you want to incorporate it in your application you can just open the Companion App and copy the code. The Complete package also includes a Vue 3 enterprise boilerplate setup, so you can get started working on your projects immediately.
