Creating large, monolithic SPAs is all the rage, but not all solutions need a single page application. I found that improving parts of my web projects with islands of functionality was better in many cases, but the complexity of Angular and my hatred of .jsx made me yearn for a modern framework that is simple and straightforward. That’s where Vue came in and saved the day.

Vue is a scalable framework that is used to add interactivity to Web sites, as well as making it possible to build complete Single Page Applications (SPAs). Instead of taking on the complexity of a full build system, you can start small with Vue and scale as your needs change. Vue has been specifically built to handle a variety of scenarios, instead of being singularly focused on large, enterprise-scale applications. While using transpilers, loaders, and command-line tools are possible, Vue also allows you to just drop a single JavaScript file on your page and start building smart, client-side interactivity.

As web developers, our job often requires us to put a designer's hat on and make our Web sites look good, even if we're not the most artistically inclined person. In addition, we need to make sites look their best regardless of what device it's being viewed on. A user interface framework can help us tremendously for both.

Bootstrap 4 is a leader in those frameworks. Originally developed for use with Twitter, the framework (now on its fourth major release) gives web developers the tools that they need to build great looking websites while also being fast, small, and customizable.

Font Awesome has been around for a long time. It is the go-to library for many web developers to add icons to their project � but, it can do a lot more. With the recent release of Font-Awesome 5, they've added even more functionality - and a lot of new icons.

In this short course, Shawn will show you how to use the new version of the library, including some of the tricks he's learned for more than just icons, and talk about some best practices in using it in your project.
