1. Introduction to Enterprise Vue
Welcome to the first draft of Enterprise Vue!
Let me first say I'm very excited to finally be recording this and getting it out to you. I actually started working on Enterprise Vue almost a year ago now, so it's great to finally see it come to light.
I also want to thank you for being part of the beta test which is not only going to give me the feedback I need to make this a really kick-ass course, but also the motivation to get it done quickly.
In case you've forgotten, Enterprise Vue is a course where you'll learn to create a full-stack, authenticated, production-ready Vue app with a Node.js API and Mongo database.
We'll also be creating a deployment pipeline that will run automated unit and browser tests on the app to ensure it's robust and stable.
In other words, we're going to build something that is as close as possible to a real enterprise app.
About the beta test
Before we get started, here are few words about the beta test.
What you're watching right now are actually draft videos of the course. The final course will be a more high quality production, not just in terms of recording quality, but also the material covered is going to be as close to perfect as I can get it.
And that's why you, as a beta tester, are so important. By seeing how you respond to the first draft, I'll know where I need to improve the course to prepare it for the official launching.
But I don't want you to think of the beta testing as an inferior experience, though; on the contrary - you'll get a level of involvement and support that students who join at the official launch time are not going to get.
How it will work
So here's how the beta test will work:
Each week or so, I'm going to release a handful of new videos. I'll send you an email each time I do that with a breakdown of what's included.
Ideally, I'd like you to watch any new videos within that week they're released so that we can have a group discussion about them. That'll be beneficial to me, but also to you, as you'll have a cohort of other beta testers to work with.
If you're joining half way through the beta test that's fine too, just try and catch up as quickly as you can.
And for any comments or feedback you have, it'd be great if you can either them leave under each video in the comments section, or perhaps open an issue on the code repository if it's code you believe doesn't work or could be improved.
I'm also thinking of creating a Discord or Slack channel for real-time discussion as well, so I'll let you know about that.
Okay - in the next video we're going to talk about what you'll be learning throughout Enterprise Vue.
