One thing we have noticed though is that it's not as easy to find this content as we would like. It can be hard for someone new to Vaadin to figure out where to start learning, or what to do after their first "Hello World." If someone finds a helpful video on YouTube, it's not apparent where they should go to find more related resources.
Introducing Learning Center
To make it easier to get started with Vaadin and continue your learning journey in web app development, we started a project called Learning Center.
The first visible change is that we have brought learning content front and center in the main menu. Under the learn menu, you find links to product documentation, tutorials, and training courses.
The new tutorials page presents learning content in an easily browsable and searchable way. You are presented with relevant related content and given a possibility to discuss the material in an embedded comment section.
In the short term, our focus is on producing and moving over content to the tutorials section.
Alongside the content creation, we'll start drafting a tighter integration between the docs, tutorials, and component demos. We want it to be easy to find the relevant documentation from a tutorial and related tutorials from the documentation.
We are also planning on integrating our instructor-led courses and classes to the learning center. There will be free basic level classes and paid in-depth courses that are included in Pro and Prime subscriptions.
Let us know what you want to learn
Now is a great time to suggest any topics you think we should cover in the Learning Center. You can add your suggestions in the comments below, or tweet us @vaadin.
