SSW TV - Blazor Web Apps – Goodbye JavaScript! I’m in love with C#

VIDEO: 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.

Talk #2 - EF Core Query Tags and logging with Jernej "JK" Kavka

NET Core allows us to log just about everything very easily, but when something goes wrong with SQL queries, how exactly do you figure out where it's coming from...?

This is where EF Core Query Tags comes into play, along with a couple of logging strategies, you'll never be confused by the intent and location of your queries again!

Talk #3 - Angular - Satisfying your performance-hungry UI with Gabriel George

Angular is one of the fastest JavaScript UI frameworks, however sometimes when we want to render a large number of components it can still perform poorly. You think to yourself "Am I doing it wrong?"

Gabe will show us how to use built-in functionalities of Angular to make rendering snappier.
