Exploring Blazor, or C# and .NET in the Browser without Plug-ins

There’s been a ton of buzz in the .NET community lately around πŸ”₯ Blazor. Unlike many hyped technologies however, Blazor seems to have earned the attention. It earned it in part by delivering a solution that gives C# developers what they want but doing so in a way that relied on open web standards. In this session, I go deeper into what Blazor is, how it works and how you can use it to build web apps.

Demos

This section contains step-by-step instructions to execute each of the demos.

Pre-requisites

The following should be installed for the demos to work:

Over a decade ago, the first version of Silverlight was released and rapidly became a panacea for C# developers to write client web apps. The combination of plug-in free smartphones and evolving HTML5 standards led to its fast demise. From its ashes a new framework has been born that accomplishes what it could not: running .NET, in every modern desktop and phone browser, without plug-ins. Learn about Blazor, a framework for building Single Page Applications (SPA) that uses the power of WebAssembly to bring .NET apps to your browser.

Enjoy the presentation!

I've have been looking at blazor for a nice while now, I first heard of it about a year ago but never really dipped my toes into it since it was in early experimental stages.

Looks like it is shaping up to be a nice technology to pick up for my next project.

Blazor sure does look great. It's an interesting mix of the big 3 frontend frameworks at the moment. For anyone in the South East if England, there's a meetup on the topic in a few weeks! Check out this Meetup with Reading .NET meetu.ps/e/H9HHj/wd1KN/d
