In addition to being able to use Vue.js to generate HTML documents, you can also use it to display SVGs. This talk will demonstrate how you can do just that!
Battle of the Frameworks was a meetup hosted by Orbis Connect with three speakers; one representing React; one representing Angular, and one representing Vue.js. I represented Vue!

Vue.js is the latest big front-end framework. It's blazingly fast, easy to learn, and a valuable tool to have in your arsenal. Did you know you can work with SVGs directly in your Vue.js templates? This talk will explain the basics of Vue, explore some of the things you can do with SVGs, and show you how you can visualise some simple data without using a library like d3 or Highcharts.

As developers, we have a responsibility to make sure that as many people as possible can use the websites and applications that we create. But with a new generation of websites—single page applications—come a new set of challenges for users with disabilities, and the assistive technology they use to browse the web. Client-side routing, custom input elements, and shiny animated content: all things that screen readers can struggle with if the developer who implemented it didn't consider accessibility.
During this talk, I'll explain what we as developers can do to ensure that our single page applications are usable by everyone, including people who might not use a keyboard, mouse and screen like the majority of us do. I'll show how some assistive technology is used, and demonstrate how some common mistakes we make affect people using that assistive technology.

Did you know that you can use Vue.js to create interactive, animated visualisations using SVGs? This article will explore how you can do just that, by building an animated COVID-19 tracker.
transform-when is a library I wrote at SamKnows that allows you to combine a number of variables—scroll position, time, and user actions—to create beautiful, performant animations. This article demonstrates some of the functionality of the library.
If you or a computer needs to sort a list of items, you'll use an algorithm to do it. There are lots of different sorting algorithms: this article explains and visualises some of the common ones.
This article explains how you can represent an array as an HTML list, make it sortable, and make changes to the HTML list be reflected in the original array.
