Four years ago, I left my job as a successful senior manager at a software company to start out on my own, write software and clean windows (physical, not the OS ) as a way to get by until such a time that the software paid the bills. I have a wife and 2 children.
4 years later, I’m in the core team within Quasar, I spend a considerable amount of time helping out where I can in Quasar and even my wife and kids know what Quasar is. The point? Quasar has had a big impact on a lot of people, myself included. I’m paying my bills, I’m writing software and simply put, I’m in the best position I’ve been in for a long time.
When I started writing my software (which I have since shelved in favor of doing contract work / awaiting a migration to Quasar v1) - https://www.myserviceplanner.com - I found lots of component frameworks, lots of handy standalone Vue components, lots of libraries to do what I wanted - you get my point.
THEN I found Quasar.
For me, I was sold in version 0.14. Even though the API was a lot different to the one you see now it was easy to see the dedication, the vision and the simply the genius in the framework. Quasar was on a mission to making developers lives easier and as a family man, I needed that.
I needed a JS framework - Quasar filled those boots.
I needed SPA and Mobile - Quasar did it.
I needed a community that could help in areas I fell short in (JS was very new to me at the time) - Quasar had it. (p.s If the forum is a little Quiet, try discord )
I needed a framework that provided solutions to problems I didn’t know I had - Quasar did it (things like SSR for SEO didn’t occur to me back then)
What I’m trying to say is you’re not “betting” your job on anything, I firmly believe you’re guaranteeing your position within the company by taking them in a forward thinking, secure and firm direction using Quasar.
Worth noting, I’ve just done EXACTLY the same: I’ve been on a 4 week trial for a longer term contract. My job was to build a browser extension. I could have done this in various ways but I believe in the direction of Quasar so much that even though Quasar didn’t support Browser Extensions, I sold the idea to the customer and implemented the new mode myself - I can’t share the results of that work just yet but I can say that I’ve landed that longer term contract. Because of Quasar.
It’s not just me that made this investment - it was my wife and kids and we have absolutely ZERO regrets.
What does this mean for you?
1.0 is a number. Quasar could have been 1.0 back at 0.14 and we could now be on v4.1 but Razvan and in turn his team have high standards and nothing but the best would do. IMO there are no bets using Quasar, it’s a like a secure blanket in this cold and dreary node_modules filled world
Anyways, I’ve waffled enough. Hit us up on Discord or here on the forums if you have any other questions
