It is always fun to play with new toys! This article from Julio Sampaio introduces you to Blazor – Web pages done in C#.
Blazor stands for Browser + Razor, which gives you an idea of what’s behind the new framework. Razor is the ASP.NET programming syntax that Microsoft uses to create its C# (or VB.NET) dynamic pages. Now, you can create web applications using only C# and run them in a web browser.

“Microsoft Message Queuing (MSMQ) is currently not available for .NET Core. While other message queuing systems are generally preferred, many enterprise applications were based on MSMQ and this creates a problem for teams looking to migrate from .NET Framework to .NET Core or the upcoming .NET 5. But a recent pull request for Reference Source may change the situation.”

In the previous post of this series, Dave Brock discussed the init-only features of C# 9, which allowed us to make individual properties immutable. That works great on a case-by-case basis, but the real power in leveraging C# immutability is when we can do this for custom types. This is where records shine.
This is the second post in a five-post series on C# 9 features in-depth.

Here’s the umbrella of .NET 5 to the rescue. It’s a MAJOR change because of the following reasons:
As the first part of this unification scheme, Microsoft’s Xamarin mobile development platform will switch from using the Mono BCL to join other components leveraging the .NET Core BCL. With that move, Xamarin mobile development will be folded into .NET 5. That means that for the first time, one BCL-based framework will handle all app models:
- ASP.NET Core
- Entity Framework Core
Wait, WPF and WinForms made it into .NET 5? Yes, it’s true. Hello there, old friends! Nice to see them included in this runtime. The idea of using one SDK to build apps with is pretty exciting stuff, if you ask me.
