Is GitHub the new CMS? August 2020 | View Online

Pull Request Approved - Using GitHub as a CMS

Content Management Systems like WordPress, are often a popular choice when it comes to managing content, but have you ever considered using GitHub for the backend? At SSW we are fans of GitHub, not just for source code but for web content too. I’ve discussed how we recently migrated our staff profiles from SharePoint to GitHub and the benefits were immediate.

This site is called SSW People, ssw.com.au/people and has a bunch of awesome widgets, so you can add a lot of personality to the profiles your customers read. Check out my SSW profile for an example of how you can hear, see and watch me.

Blazor Web Apps - Goodbye JavaScript! I'm in love with C# by William Liebenberg

By this time next year most of us will be hooked on Blazor WebAssembly. Now we can run C# code directly in our browsers and get the added bonus of having a full .NET stack for building enterprise web applications.

In this talk, William explains how for many years the only option we had was to use JavaScript/TypeScript frameworks such as Angular, React, Vue, etc. While these frameworks are wildly popular and fully capable, .NET developers feel the pain and waste a lot of time gluing a JavaScript front end web application framework to a C# ASP.NET Core backend. The pain increases with different tooling for the front-end and back-end.

Blazor WebAssembly is now generally available and adoption rates are skyrocketing. Come see William demonstrate how easy Blazor is for developing enterprise web applications.

DISCLAIMER: No JavaScript will be harmed during this presentation.
