Whelan shares his story with us, how he has become a Vue.JS expert by learning with the free projects on Education Ecosystem during the Pandemic. He says he has sharpened his programming skills and looks forward to learning with more projects on the platform. He encourages all college students and professionals who have found themselves with a lot of free time during the pandemic to take advantage of Education Ecosystem and stay productive while they add more skills to their existing skill sets.
My name is Marjan Whelan, a sophomore student taking BSc. Computer Applications at Dublin City University, Ireland. The onset of the Covid-19 pandemic saw the world, including universities closing and everybody quarantined at home in an attempt to contain the spread of the virus. This came with students and developers having a lot of free time on their hands. I saw this as an opportunity to advance my coding skills as a way to stay productive during the ongoing pandemic.
In earnest, I started searching for materials and tutorials that would give me a real hands-on experience in learning the Vue.JS framework. I had not searched for a lot of time when I came across Education Ecosystem, a platform that offered real world projects, tutorials, and a project repository to help you learn the framework.
In this project, the creator, Melight, takes you through building a Vue.JS based UI for a search web application. He takes you through from the basics to the intermediate material of the course.
The platform provides a forum where issues are discussed and addressed immediately. It took me 3.5 weeks of going through the project and a few others on Vue.JS. I can now confidently call myself an expert.
I have since joined the Education Ecosystem community and I look forward to creating projects with them and contributing to the development of coding. I encourage every computer science student looking to advance their coding skills to look out for the projects on Education Ecosystem and learn with them.
