Blazoring a New Path

I’ve been looking for a successor to Web Forms for a long while now and for the last 12 to 18 months I’ve looked at various thing mainly AngularJS and Angular. but in the back ground I’ve been keeping an eye on Steve Sanderson’s baby Blazor. The first time I saw it was on YouTube as a concept in his his NDC video Web Apps can’t really do *that*, can they? - Steve Sanderson in August 2017 and then again in January 2018 with the same sort of thing Web Apps can’t really do *that*, can they? - Steve Sanderson it was the bit about Web Assembly that caught my eye, the possibility of running .Net in the browser. We had Silverlight but that was a plug-in and is dead for all intents and purposes. but this is different from that it’s the .Net Standard running in the browser running on the Mono implementation.

And so I became a follower always checking where it was up to and now it’s in preview Blazor 0.3.0 experimental release now available and on GitHub here aspnet/Blazor.

So here we are first I think I am going to need to learn the basics of Blazor and I hope you’ll come along for the ride. So as Blazor move forward I will be also and I will be creating bits for Blazor and writing it all up here.

Going forward I believe this could be the new Web Forms but done right.
