In this episode, I was thrilled to be joined by Chris Sainty to chat all about Blazor! Blazor is a new .NET technology allowing you to build SPA-like frontend web UIs in C#! Very focused on developer productivity and componentisation - Blazor is certainly going to become my go-to for frontends moving forward! And chatting with Chris in this episode, has shown me even more reasons why Blazor is becoming so immensely popular!
Chris is a Microsoft MVP, author, and principal software engineer with over 15 years experience with ASP.NET. He works at Deployed, a London based startup, leading the engineering team. Passionate about sharing his knowledge with the community, he regularly writes both for his own blog as well as others—such as Visual Studio magazine, Progress Telerik, and StackOverflow. A passion for blogging led to his current focus, writing Blazor in Action with Manning publications. He also maintains several popular open source projects under the GitHub organisation, Blazored. When not tapping on a keyboard, Chris is a keen speaker, having delivered talks at both user groups and conferences all over the world (virtually).
Note that Manning have very kindly provided a permanent 35% discount code for all their products (in all formats). Use coupon code ‘podunhandled21’.
They have also provided a free copy of Chris’s book, Blazor in Action, to a lucky winner. Tweet out about the show (mentioning hashtag #UnhandledException), and mention both Chris’s book and Manning - and we’ll pick a winner at random in a couple of weeks.
