Scratching the Surface with Blazor
Have you heard of Blazor? What would you do if you didn't have to learn the latest JavaScript framework of the week every other week? What if you could leverage your current .NET dev skills on the client? If these questions have your mind spinning then I may have some good news for you.

In this session, we will take a high-level look at one of Microsoft's "experimental" technologies - Blazor. We will learn the what, why, and a little bit of the how as we scratch the surface of what Blazor can do. We are in really exciting times in the Microsoft community and Blazor is something to be excited about. Join us at this Southern Fried DNN meetup as we dip our toes into the waters of Blazor and see how this may affect our future at DNN.
