Interview with Solomon Eseme

Solomon Eseme is the author of Architecting Vue.js 3 Enterprise-Ready Web Applications we got the chance to sit down with him and find out more about his experience of writing with Packt.

Q: How did you become an author for Packt? Tell us about your journey. What was your motivation for writing this book?

Solomon: Packt Publishing reached out to me on LinkedIn asking if I will be interested in sharing my knowledge of VueJs. I understand that I write a lot of technical content around VueJS and am always eager to share new things, tips, concepts, or features of the framework.

So when Packt reached out to me concerning writing a piece on Architecting Vue.js 3 Enterprise-Ready Web Applications I was bewildered because I thought that should be a popular thing for authors to write about. However, as I did my research and come up with an outline I discovered that the topic still needs to be covered in depth with the new Vue 3 release. So we embarked on the journey.

Q: What is the name of your book?

Solomon: Architecting Vue.js 3 Enterprise-Ready Web Applications: Build and deliver scalable and high-performance, enterprise-ready applications with Vue and JavaScript

Q: What kind of research did you do, and how long did you spend researching before beginning the book?

Solomon: Most of the chapters were written from my top head because I have been using VueJs for a very long time and building enterprise and scalable products for companies.

But for some of the chapters that I have little knowledge of I reached out to some of my friends in those niches to help me out by teaching me what they know then I will take some times months to practice it before writing about it.

All the chapters were written by me and that took me a very long time more than 2 years to finish writing them because of the in-depth research and a lot of learning and practicing before writing.

Q: Do you have a blog that readers can follow?

Solomon: You can follow me on

Q: What key takeaways do you want readers to come away with from the book?

Solomon: Architecting Vue.js 3 Enterprise-Ready Web Applications is an in-demand skill and learning all the methods applied in this book more in-depth will position the reader as a thought leader in the Frontend Engineering space.

Q: Can you share any blogs, websites and forums to help readers gain a holistic view of the tech they are learning?

Solomon: You can follow me on

Q. Did you face any challenges during the writing process? How did you overcome them?

Solomon: While writing this book, I faced many challenges such as knowledge gaps and writing a book while working full-time as a software engineer in a company. How I overcame the challenges are still surprising to me.

First, for the knowledge gap, I could take more than 3 months to learn, and practice before writing about any concept or I could request help from my friends who are vast in the topic to work me through.

Secondly, working with a company and writing a book has its own challenges for different persons, how I overcame my mind was my strong mindset of becoming an Author (It was a dream) and the patience the Packt team showed towards me.

Q. How would you describe your author journey with Packt? Would you recommend Packt to aspiring authors?

Solomon: 100% recommended!

Q. Why should readers choose this book over others already on the market? How would you differentiate your book from its competition?

Solomon: This book is coming from a practical perspective from a seasoned software engineer who has used Vue to develop enterprise applications and manage to scale these applications for both companies and personal business products.

This book takes the reader through building a demo Pinterest clone and demonstrating practically everything that is done before and after deploying an enterprise project.

Q. What is/are your specialist tech area(s)?

Solomon: Software engineering and Technical Writer

Q. What advice would you give to readers jumping into this technology? Do you have any top tips?

Solomon: You can make the process feel less intimidating by thinking of a book as a long series of blog posts. If you break your content down into blog-sized pieces, it’s easier to get started and to keep chugging along.

Once you’ve got words in place, you can edit them to make your work look and feel more like the book you might be imagining. Editing is always easier than writing.

Q. What’s your take on the technologies discussed in the book? Where do you see these technologies heading in the future?

Solomon: Vue has gained a significant amount of market share in the frontend industry coupled with the advancement in Vue 3. Vue is going to become the de facto of Frontend frameworks. Therefore, learning how to architect Vue.js 3 Enterprise-Ready Web Applications is and will still become more demanding in the future.

Q. Do you belong to any tech community groups?

Solomon: Backend Engineering Community

Q. How did you organize, plan, and prioritize your work and write the book?

Solomon: I didn’t. this is my first book and I didn’t know how to do it. I just bundled everything together and it ended up overwhelming me. I will work on organizing next time.

Q. What are your favorite tech journals? How do you keep yourself up to date on tech?

Solomon: GrowthLetter, Dev2CTO

Q. Would you like to share your social handles? If so, mention them below.

Solomon: Please find me on LinkedIn ->

Please find me on Twitter ->,

Q: What is that one writing tip that you found most crucial and would like to share with aspiring authors?

Solomon: Writing on any chapter you know. Don’t follow chapter to chapter.
