Before we get our feet wet, give me a half hour, and we'll build a little tool together from scratch. Don't worry; I'll go fast in this video, but once we finish - and once you've had the chance to get really excited - we'll hit the brakes, and begin reviewing each fundamental piece of Vue.js.

Let's now step on the breaks, and review each component of Vue.js. Will begin with the basics: two-way binding between a piece of data on your Vue instance, and a form input.
Let's continue with another baby-step. You have an array of data, and simply need to filter through it and render each item/key on the page. It couldn't be simpler with Vue.js!
Listening for events is a basic requirement for any client-side work. While we once had to write tedious boilerplate to simply listen for a click or blur event, that's luckily no longer the case.
Before we move on to other key areas of Vue.js, let's toy around for a bit to ensure that you have a good understanding of basic interactions.
Now that you've learned about some of the default filters, let's learn how to create our own custom filters! It's really easy. Don't forget: a filter is nothing more than a function that receives value, translates it however needed, and returns the result.

Let's figure out a basic directory structure and workflow for using Browserify with Vue. Luckily, because we have Laravel Elixir, the process is significantly easier than it would be otherwise.
Components allow us to create reusable pieces of functionality.
Props allow you to pass data, from a parent, down to a child component.
Let's dive into workflow. In this video, we'll gather all of the things we've learned in this series, and put them together. We'll move pretty fast in this video, but if you've been following along, you should be fine. Lots to learn here, so let's get started!

You've already made use of a number of directives. Everything from
v-on. But you can even create your own custom directives, when it's appropriate!
