I wanted to briefly show a project I made two years ago. This was the first project I built with Vue.js. It definitely helped me understand the basics of the framework. If you are just starting to learn a framework, then I recommend making a project like this. The project pretty much touches on all the basics of the framework (state, events, methods, computed properties, watchers, data fetching etc...).

The site uses the forex api from They have a good free tier that works great for a simple project.

Overall, I think the project looks good. I am a big fan of the button design and the box-shadow effect on all the buttons and cards. I would definitely improve the look of the information cards if I was to do it over again. They definitely look unfinished.

🚀⚙️ JavaScript Visualized: the JavaScript Engine

As JavaScript devs, we usually don't have to deal with compilers ourselves. However, it's definitely good to know the basics of the JavaScript engine and see how it handles our human-friendly JS code, and turns it into something machines understand! 🥳

Happy coding!
