    5:15-6:15pm Michael Staib - Building modern applications with Blazor and GraphQL

    Abstract:
    Blazor and GraphQL combined will revolutionize how we build rich SPA applications with pure .NET.

    Blazor, for the first time in years, gives us .NET developers the ability to develop applications that run in the browser. This allows us to use our knowledge that we acquired in the backend or desktop applications and use it in web applications.

    GraphQL, on the other hand, changed how we work with data fetching. With GraphQL, the frontend developer defines how the interface between the frontend and the backend looks like. We no more have friction between backend and frontend developers and can iterate much faster.

    Let us explore together how we can put those two technologies together and change how we design components by binding them to GraphQL fragments. With GraphQL, the data becomes front and center and drives our application.

    After having a fundamental understanding of how GraphQL improves our data fetching needs in web applications, we will move on and build a reactive application with Blazor and GraphQL. Let us together build a truly engaging next-gen application and push Blazor to the limit.

    Speaker Bio:
    Michael is a Microsoft MVP and the author of the Hot Chocolate project (https://github.com/ChilliCream/hotchocolate), a platform for building GraphQL servers and clients in .NET. For the last three years, this open-source project is his main focus.

    Apart from his work in the open-source community, Michael works as a consultant to help companies move to GraphQL. You can read about the Hot Chocolate project on his blog https://chillicream.com/blog/.
