application to Blazor and more

Wed, September 13, 2023, at 9:00 a.m. ET - 1:00 p.m. ET

Being the next generation front-end web application framework for .NET developers, Blazor offers a productive and powerful way to construct large-scale applications with a modern component-based architecture.

Blazor is great for building new, modern-looking applications, but what about migrating legacy .NET projects to it? This could be a monumental task as migration requires not only careful planning, but also knowledge of breaking changes between platforms. If you’re thinking about an ASP.NET Core, MVC or Web Forms migration don’t miss the opportunity for real-life practice with industry experts.

Join us on September 13, 2023, at 9 a.m. ET for a live application-building workshop, where you’ll modernize an existing .NET Web Forms application through migration to Blazor. To streamline the process, you’ll use the Microsoft Upgrade Assistant along with the latest versions of Visual Studio and Telerik UI for Blazor. Throughout the workshop you’ll learn how to avoid potential roadblocks and master the basic concepts behind .NET 7 and Blazor.
