When I became interested in Blazor, I tested multiple products.
Telerik UI for Blazor was both the most advanced product and the easiest to use.

Modernizing or migrating web apps with Blazor can be easy if your development team is already familiar with .NET and C#. They just need the right support. By leveraging Blazor's component-based programming model, cross-platform compatibility, seamless integration with other .NET technologies and incremental approach, you can modernize any web app while minimizing the risk of disrupting business operations.
If you are still weighing the pros and cons of using Blazor for your next app, consider some of the proven advantages:
Progress Telerik UI for Blazor is a leading UI component library, allowing you to elevate Blazor apps with polished, performant UI. Develop new Blazor apps or modernize legacy web projects in half the time with a high-performing Grid and 100+ truly native, easy-to-customize Blazor components.
With Telerik UI for Blazor you will get:
The library gives you everything you need for a beautiful, engaging, and inclusive web UI. You get a complete collection of ready-to-use yet customizable Blazor UI components. Whether you are working on a migration or a new project, UI won’t be an issue. You can focus on innovating.
Beautiful UI is an important pillar of modern applications. With the Telerik UI for Blazor library, that won’t be a problem. You get themes for all popular design systems along with the unparalleled ThemeBuilder for custom styling.
Learning a new technology is a daunting task. Telerik UI for Blazor comes with comprehensive documentation, migrations guides, industry leading support, and much more to get you up and running.
Go through Microsoft’s official Blazor documentation to get familiar with the main concept of the framework. If you are already familiar with another component-based framework, you will most likely find it a breeze as the general idea, as well as many of the core principles are similar. If you are just getting started with UI components, that’s okay, too! The documentation will help you out. Blazor components are C# classes with built-in logic related to rendering and handling events. Microsoft has a great step-by-step Blazor Tutorial that will walk you through the basics: Build your first Blazor app.
If the app you are migrating is using Kendo UI or Telerik products, you should feel right at home. If not, refer to the extensive documentation for guidance on how to configure and use the component libraries and tools.
Evaluate the current UI of your application and try to identify the individual components you would need, as well as the exact functionality each component will need to perform. This will immensely help you in structuring your component hierarchy properly from the get-go.
Once you know your components, you can start recreating them in Blazor using Razor syntax and C#. Use Blazor's component-based approach to build reusable UI elements. Consider leveraging existing CSS styles but adapt them to Blazor's component structure if necessary.
If your business layer is already written in C#, then simply moving it to the new app may be enough. If not, then some recreating will have to take place to accommodate the new language and/or structure.
Once your app is functioning correctly under Blazor, think about whether you can optimize it through refactoring. Sharing component logic, UI reusability and code-behind files are just a few of the Blazor advantages you can capitalize on.
