Blazor is taking the hobbyist world by storm, but did you know it is perfect for enterprise applications? Having the whole project in one place in one language has done wonders for the development experience. However, as new tech in its perceived infancy there are doubts about whether it’s aged enough for production scenarios.

This is where AntBlazor comes to the rescue! It is a comprehensive set of enterprise-class UI components, built with a focus on ease-of-use.

In this talk, Luke demonstrates how the popular open-source component libraries work, with insightful comparisons and demonstrations.

While many are complete wrappers around their underlying design frameworks (Bootstrap, Material Design, etc.), they are built around the idea of matching the UI, instead of worrying about the developer’s UX.

AntBlazor is fully supported by the .NET Foundation and boasts an impressive following. The best part is the awesome documentation and code samples to get you up and running in no time!

MAUI – Do you build cross-platform mobile apps with .NET MAUI ? (for iOS and Android)

If you’re building installable binary apps (as opposed to web apps), it makes sense to use a cross-platform framework so that you don’t need to maintain multiple code bases.

Build Multi-Platform Applications for Mobile, Desktop and Web in .NET with the Uno Platform with Nick Randolph

The ability to deploy the same UI codebase across all platforms is a great productivity booster. But the application lifecycle starts much earlier – at design time. Uno Platform provides a Figma plugin, which eliminates the timely designer-developer handoff. In addition, the platform now provides a set of non-UI extensions to help jump-start your apps. Lastly, the VS Code extensions allows C# and XAML to use VS Code with IntelliSense-like experience, C# and XAML Hot Reload, and more.

Do You Know When To Ask For Help?

When you’re working, you will encounter issues that block you from progressing, and force you to do some googling, and investigation on how to move forward. These moments can be stressful, especially for junior developers and the question arises, “When should I ask for help?”
