    content0:
      "ASP.NET is an open-source server-side web application framework designed for web development to produce " +
      "dynamic web pages. It was developed by Microsoft to allow programmers to build dynamic web sites, web applications " +
      "and web services. It was first released in January 2002 with version 1.0 of the .NET Framework, and is the successor " +
      "to Microsoft's Active Server Pages (ASP) technology. ASP.NET is built on the Common Language Runtime (CLR), allowing " +
      "programmers to write ASP.NET code using any supported .NET language. The ASP.NET SOAP extension framework allows " +
      "ASP.NET components to process SOAP messages.",

    content1:
      "The ASP.NET MVC is a web application framework developed by Microsoft, which implements the " +
      "model–view–controller (MVC) pattern. It is open-source software, apart from the ASP.NET Web Forms component which is " +
      "proprietary. In the later versions of ASP.NET, ASP.NET MVC, ASP.NET Web API, and ASP.NET Web Pages (a platform using " +
      "only Razor pages) will merge into a unified MVC 6.The project is called ASP.NET vNext.",

    content2:
      "JavaScript (JS) is an interpreted computer programming language. It was originally implemented as " +
      "part of web browsers so that client-side scripts could interact with the user, control the browser, communicate " +
      "asynchronously, and alter the document content that was displayed.[5] More recently, however, it has become common in " +
      "both game development and the creation of desktop applications."
  }
}
  1. Summarizing the above steps, update the src/App.vue file with following code.
