Blazor - You Want To Run .NET Where?!.

Jamie Taylor Profile Picture Jamie Taylor

Blazor and Web Assembly are both relatively new ideas. Or are they? WebAssembly has been around for a lot longer than you might think, and running .NET in the browser isn't a new idea either - who remembers SilverLight?

In this talk I cover a little of the history of front end technologies - going all the way back to the first browser to support CSS, and coming back to the present day - before diving into just what WebAssembly is, and how Blazor, Mono and .NET Core fit in.

I'll show off a demo application that I have built using Umbraco Headless, and run all of the code for the application entirely in the browser. I'll also talk about the benefits and pitfalls of running .NET code in your browser.
