Are you a C# developer that is just too lazy to learn Javascript? Have you ever wanted to program an full-stack website in C#? Do you ever harken back to the "good ol' days" of Silverlight?

Web Assembly is the new runtime that is included in modern web browsers alongside Javascript that allows you to program front end logic in whatever language you like!

Blazor is a new experimental framework that uses web assembly to create composable websites using C# (my favorite language)! Does this mean the end of Javascript's reign as the most popular language?
Can I start developing full-stack C# web applications? I'll be answering these questions and more!
