Blazor - Web Applications with C#

Thanks to WASM (WebAssembly) it is finally possible to create C# web applications, running exclusively in the browser. Microsoft created Blazor that, together with ASP.NET Core, allows you to write web application, Progressive web apps (PWA), (native) mobile and desktop applications.

Blazor comes in two flavors: Server and Client side. The code for both flavors is generally the same, so the course will cover both flavors with examples and exercises.

Because Blazor will be in development, the course always covers the latest version. But examples about past or future features will be in the material as well.

The course material will have tens of examples of all the technologies used. Exercises are target to make the students think instead of being directed, to achieve better memorization. At the end of the course the students should be ready to independently start and maintain Blazor projects.

Prerequisite:

  • Professional software developer with knowledge of C#. Some knowledge of web technologies like HTML and CSS is helpful.
  • Course can be followed on both Mac and Window machines using Visual Studio Code or Visual Studio.
