Blazor: A Beginner's Guide

A quick start guide to productivity with Blazor
by Ed Charbeneau


In human years, Blazor appeared just recently. However, in software years, it has already grown into a mature framework—an environment for scalable, rich, interactive web applications ready to take its place in the ASP.NET line. This book is our way of inviting more people to see it for themselves.

Ed Charbeneau has worked on Blazor since its inception in 2017 and is the most prolific author of Blazor learning resources. You probably have read one of his many blog posts on our website.

The purpose of this book is to combine all the knowledge Ed possesses in a simple, open and free format, which can be regularly updated through Blazor’s aggressive update policy. The book covers these all-important topics:

    • What Blazor is
    • The problems it solves and how it solves them
    • Strategies for moving to Blazor from previous ASP.NET generations and JavaScript
    • Ways to get more out of Blazor by enhancing it with Telerik UI for Blazor to shorten development cycles and benefit your entire team

Blazor was created to facilitate web application development by making JavaScript obsolete. With it, the power of C# and .NET can be leveraged to create both ends of an application via a complete .NET virtual machine on top of WebAssembly. Telerik UI for Blazor is the most extensive suite of UI components and tools for Blazor. It helps developers focus on their application and not reinventing the wheel by providing off-the-shelf widgets for many common scenarios.
