    Episode 8: Vue's Education Philosophy Brought to Schools (feat. Hope Wilder)

    Episode 8: Vue's Education Philosophy Brought to Schools (feat. Hope Wilder)

    The theme of this episode is EDUCATION. We have special guest, Hope Wilder, the Founder of Pathfinder Community School, which is a self-directed learning community for ages 5-14, located in Durham, North Carolina. They focus on self-directed education and applying principles with children. Remember these catchphrases: Is it good enough for now? Is it safe to try? Those who do the work decide.

    [00:01:13] Chris starts off and talks about his background as an educator and voiced his opinions on the traditional education systems.

    [00:04:21] Hope discusses how she got into education and founding a school. The more she worked with kids, the more she saw that forcing kids to learn things just doesn’t really work.

    [00:06:08] Hope explains what it means for it to be a democratic school and how it’s a very systems level of approach.

    [00:11:22] How do the kids learn skills such as conflict resolution and being responsible for getting their work done when working in groups?

    [00:15:41] Ari wonders if Hope provides any sort of suggestions, guidance, or options for the kids to work from or if it’s very much from their own imaginations and personal motives.

    [00:19:36] Chris brings up finding your own resources and how a former student at Pathfinder, now co-works at a tech company and he’s only 15 years old!

    [00:23:08] Ben asks both Chris and Hope about how they feel that self-directed learning relates to development in the Open Source community as far as the relationship between them and how we can learn from that.

    [00:28:00] Hope discusses sociocracy which is a form of democracy. There are two important principles or catchphrases that they use a lot at the school.

    [00:41:12] Chris gives his thoughts on bootcamps vs self-taught.

    [00:49:09] Hope reveals why she created Pathfinder, which was a part of self-healing.

    [00:57:26] Hope mentions some resources people can dig into if they are looking into self-directed learning for their kids. She gives MANY, so listen.

    Picks of the week:
    [01:01:02] Ben’s pick is a book called, “Essentialism” by Greg McKeown.
    [01:01:54] Chris’s pick is to check out self-directed education, like Pathfinder.
    [01:03:18] Hope has two picks: “Outlander” on Netflix and a blog called “Post Secret.”
    [01:06:38] Ari has three picks: two songs by music group “Moderat,” called, “A New Error” and “Les Grandes Marches.” The third is a TV show on HULU called, “Community.”


    Special Guest: Hope Wilder.

    Episode 6: May the Forms be with You (feat. Marina Mosti)

    This episode features a new guest Marina Mosti, author of the book "Build Forms with Vue.js." We get the opportunity to chat about forms in Vue, her writing process and her journey as a developer and educator.

    [00:01:25] Marina discusses how she started using Vue and how she started coding using PHP, which led her to Laravel, a free open source PHP web framework.

    [00:04:18] Elizabeth asks Marina what made her want to become an educator and put out those resources into the ecosystem.

    [00:05:39] Marina talks about mentoring other women and offering 5-10 minute workshops and exercises to help them understand various focused topics like principles of UX. Also, she talks about the first article she wrote on date-fns.

    [00:11:12] Marina’s book, “Building Forms With Vue.js,” was an idea based on a personal annoyance she had with websites not being able to submit forms. Listen to hear about what her book is about.

    [00:17:10] Ben asks a question about what it means to “mask your input.” Marina talks about Vuelidate and how it’s an amazing library.

    [00:27:07] Ben asks Marina about how writing a blog was not at all like writing a long article. She elaborates on this.

    [00:40:58] Elizabeth asks if Marina has any suggestions for dealing with CSS and dynamic forms.

    Episode 5: Productivity Tools, Workflows & Tabs vs Spaces

    Episode 5: Productivity Tools, Workflows & Tabs vs Spaces

    One of the things we love most as developers are our tools! In this episode, we talk about some of our favorite productivity tools, debate the merits of different keyboard layouts, how we work as developers and more. And yes, we even tackle the infamous tabs vs spaces debate.

    [00:03:02] What code editors are they all using?

    [00:09:53] Since they started talking about terminal themes, the group wanted to find out what themes they are using in VS Code?
    [00:14:21] The BIG question?? Tabs or spaces? 1, 2, or 3?? Chris argues that the research shows “2” is the correct answer.

    [00:27:12] What are some of the other favorite VS Code extensions that they like?

    Episode 4: JAMming, MCing, Vuex & More with Divya Sasidharan

    Episode 4: JAMming, MCing, Vuex & More with Divya Sasidharan

    Enjoy the Vue – Episode 4

    In this episode of Enjoy the Vue we sit down with Divya Sasidharan. Divya will be the Master of Ceremonies at Vue.js in Amsterdam, and just weeks after she is hosting a workshop on “Vue State Management with Vuex” at VueConfUS in Austin. Divya is currently a Developer Advocate at Netlify. She believes that there is a better workflow for building and deploying sites that doesn’t require a server…just ask her about the JAMstack. We chat with her about emceeing, blogging, hosting a workshop, and JAMstack.

    [00:01:51] Divya talks about her involvement in the VueConf’s coming up. Vue.js in Amsterdam and VueConf US where she is hosting a workshop. She gives us a quick peek into this intro to Vuex workshop. At Vue.js she is the emcee.
    [00:05:32] Chris digs deeper into emceeing (vs giving talks or hosting workshops) and what it takes to do it. Divya goes into how it was a natural evolution for her.
    [00:15:55] Chris circles back to the Vuex Workshop that Divya is hosting. She explains how it grew out of previous talks she was doing. Divya likes the fact that there is much more interactivity when doing workshops, vs talks where it’s pretty much a one-way conversation. There are also time constraints when giving talks. A workshop provides so much more freedom.
    [00:24:02] Elizabeth was following Divya’s JAMuary posts about JAMstack. Divya created a series, which involved sharing thoughts and insights about JAMstack on a daily basis.
    [00:34:12] Divya explains what JAMstack is...Javascript, API, and Markup. It’s about building sites as statically as possible. She goes in depth into JAMstack.
