Issue #98 - Vue.js 3 Roadmap, Build an Instagram clone with Vue.js and CSSGram, and more

Welcome to the first issue of the Vue.js Developers Newsletter for 2019!

If you're chomping at the bit for Vue.js 3, you can keep track of progress with the Vue.js 3 Roadmap released by Evan this week.

You may notice that the newsletter looks different this week. That's because I've decided to migrate off Revue, the newsletter software I used for issues 1-97, and instead just create and send it with my email host, Mailchimp.

Revue is a great product, the problem for me was that it was complicated (and expensive) managing subscribers over two separate email services.

So I built my own very basic newsletter creation app (with Vue, of course) where I can add article links and spit out the HTML that gets pasted into the email.

You'll probably agree it looks much plainer right now without the meta images, but I plan on tricking it out a bit over the coming weeks.

If you have any feedback or spot any bugs please let me know!
