VueConf US 2019 was one for the books. It’s awesome to get so many Vue-minded individuals in one place to discuss where we’ve been, where we’re going, and where we can go. Over on, we’ve published the VueConf US talks, which include a keynote by Evan You and insight from Core Team Members such as Chriz Fritz.

In his State of Vuenation talk, Evan You (the creator of Vue.js) spoke about the growth of Vue over the last few months and some of the exciting new things that we can look forward to.

A few highlights from Evan’s talk include:

  • A new slot syntax
  • Slots unification
  • Advanced reactivity API
  • Dynamic lifecycle hook injection

He also pointed out that

Advanced reactivity API + Dynamic lifecycle hook injection = New composition patterns 😱

Plus, he gave us a sneak peek at more 3.0 RFCs to be published soon, which he lists in his talk as well.

There’s a lot to be excited about when it comes to the release of Vue 3.0. Vue Core-Team Member Chris Fritz shared with us what he is MOST excited about. While Evan went over some new features that we can expect, Chris told us about how those may affect our code. The moral of the story was that the trends are pointing in the direction of our code being simpler yet more explicit.

Simpler: Less code, fewer concepts, fewer “footguns”

More explicit: Clear relationships, expressive code

The specific ways that our code will be affected by the new features are discussed in depth in Chris’ talk. Toward the end, he answers some questions that some of you might be wondering about.

“If I’m not already using Vue, should I wait for Vue 3.0?”

“Will Vue 3.0 support internet explorer?”

“Will Vue 3.0 break everything?”

Well, spoiler alert on that last one: Not quite. But if it’s something that you’re worried about, Chris tells you how your voice can be heard on the changes that Vue 3.0 will implement.
