re: How Blazor Is Going to Change Web Development VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

Thanks for the article! How do you think we'll be talking about Blazor at the end of 2020? Do you think Blazor will be widely used in production?

 

I think we'll see significant adoption by the end of 2020. We'll see a lot of Web Assembly industry wide, and .NET folks adopting Blazor to get there.

But I think "widely" used in production will take a few years. One thing Blazor has going for it: it's an add on technology, not completely from scratch. It's a small step for ASP.NET developers and a smaller step for .NET Core developers. This will spread adoption as they have the skills they need, and "backend" developers can more easily build front end applications.

One thing it has going against it is the fact that it's Microsoft and there's still some developer aversion to that platform. Also at this time, an ASP.NET Web API coupled with React or Angular works great. There may not be enough "pain" in that process to push people towards Blazor.

 

Thanks and that makes a lot of sense. For developers already in the Microsoft ecosystem, it will probably be a no-brainer to adopt Blazor. I agree with you that winning developers over from other platforms probably won't happen as easily. But it will be great to have even more excellent choices for web development!

 

That's great that C# developers have a new toy and everything, but I can't keep myself from objecting that

This will spread adoption as they have the skills they need, and "backend" developers can more easily build front end applications.

is a major understatement about what kinds of skills you need to build front end applications. It's not just the languages you use.
