You've got an legacy MV* app. It's hard to maintain, hard to test, and it's a thorn in your side. You're keeping it running but both the code, and your skillset are getting a little old. If a ground-up rewrite is out of the question, you can use Vue to piecemeal refactor and modernize the app with minimal risk and zero downtime.

One of my favorite features of Vue.js is that it is incrementally adoptable, but what does this mean? Ultimately you can take any part of a webpage and turn it into a vue component. Does that piece require some jQuery widget? No problem. The libraries work just fine, side by side.

This session provides a roadmap for taking a legacy app and incrementially turning it into a modern vue masterpiece.
