<In Person + Virtual>[.NET@Night] Blazor Workshop

Needs a location

Topic: Blazor Workshop
In this edition of .NET@Night, we'll be doing a Blazor Workshop! We'll mix in covering material with hands-on labs to get you up and productive with Blazor, while also hitting on topics beyond Hello World such as Testing and Auth.

We will be in person at the Lean TECHniques office at 9131 Northpark Dr in Johnston, IA 50131, and we will be on Zoom like normal. Unfortunately Meetup.com makes you pick one or the other, and doesn't support Hybrid, so we'll send a mass e-mail with the Zoom link the day of the event.

Food, beverages, power strips, and WiFi will be provided for those that are in-person.
