Writing modern web applications that have a rich, UI can be difficult at best. You’ve got to contend with client-side JavaScript, HTML, and finally your server-side code & framework of choice. Using Blazor, you can now bring your C# skills to the table to build interactive web UIs.

In this hands-on lab, you will get to build your own Blazor applications. First we’ll cover the more mature components of Blazor introduced with .NET 5 and Visual Studio 2019. You’ll learn how to design you components, how to use server-side Blazor and then client-side Blazor. This will cover the UI, data binding, calling server-side components, and good DevOps practices. Second, you’ll get to try out the latest new features with .NET 6 and .NET MAUI Blazor apps.

WARNING: This workshop will have a mix of mature already shipping features and some “hot off the press” tools & technologies that could still be in pre-release form. As we get close to the actual availability of these tools and the date of the workshop, we’ll expand this outline and the requirements.

You will learn:

  • What Blazor is and isn't and why you choose it
  • How to build client and server-side Blazor apps
  • How to build .NET 6 MAUI Blazor Apps
