Why learn vuejs as a backend developer

Vuejs is a powerful front-end framework for building large and scalable frontend applications, so why learn vuejs as a backend developer? why the stress?

In this article, I will show you why it’s necessary to have at least an experience with VUEJS as a backend developer from my personal experience.

My Reasons why I learn VUEJS as a backend developer.

1. My Job Position

One of my points will be JOB, what if you are working in a startup or a company that cannot afford the expense of division of labor.

You see, your job position as a backend developer will at least need you to know how to generate requests and responses using VUEJS.

I also understand the fact that this will depend if your company is currently using VUEJS as their front end framework, but well, am taking the experience from my case were I have a similar situation.

I recently joined a 4-month team for a contract job as a backend developer and my JD requires that I learn VUEJS as one of the requirements, which is the reason why I have to learn VUEJS as a backend developer.

2. Reusable Components

If the above point is not enough for you what about Server-Side Rendering.

Since backend developers like you care more about servers wouldn’t it be great if you save yourself stress by reusing some of the components already created by your front-end team?

  1. Better SEO
  2. Faster time to content especially on slow internet or slow devices.

So, to achieve all this as a backend developer you need to at least learn VUEJS.

In my 4 months contract job as a backend developer, after discovering the usefulness and reusing components, a VUEJS developer was brought in, it made my job as a backend developer a lot easier.

I simply just reused the components created by the VUEJS developer, simply because I have a basic knowledge of how to use it.

3. Real time Implementation (Reactivity System)

Still not satisfy?

Another great reason will be to understand and tap into VUEJS Reactivity System which can help in performing real-time validation, updates, and Instant feedback.

The VUEJS Reactivity System is so simple, easy to understand and implement, it assisted me to create a real-time admin dashboard for the company and I fall in love with it.

Because I really love creating real-time applications and VUEJS made It possible for me even when am not a frontend developer full time.

4. Laravel-Vue Integration.

One sweet thing about VUEJS that made me love it the more is that it’s automatically integrated into my number one love LARAVEL.

If you are a Laravel developer working with VUEJS will be like A, B, C, D to you because Laravel supports it right from the box.

So, you don’t have to be a JavaScript or frontend guru to setup VUEJS and get your application to production in a jiffy.

5. Upgrade my Portfolio.

If you are still curious and saying and what again!!!, well in my opinion just to add VUEJS to your skillset and portfolio because as a backend developer.

it’s necessary to understand a little about frontend development maybe you can start with VUEJS.

Wrapping up

I understand that all the above listed here can be achieved with other frameworks.

Also, I am not trying to compare VUEJS with other frameworks.

The article is just to list out my personal reasons why I learned VUEJS as a developer today even if I focus more on the backend stack.

The list will be updated based on your contributions via comment section, as a backend developer, why did you learn VUEJS or why will you learn it.
