Over the past six months I have been living and road tripping across the United States. While I was on the road I decided to learn about the super-hot-and-trending Vue.js framework and build a USA Roadtrip App along the way. There’s a reason why Vue is so damn popular, and I will share some insights in this post. But I had to find that out for myself so I understood what all the fuss was about.

b.) are part of a trendy new startup that only uses 2017 tech or;

c.) just love to fuel the debate and ride the latest JS bandwagon!
