Cutting Edge - Blazor at Work: Events, Binding and Composition
I confess I’ve never been a huge fan of Angular and React, two extremely popular frameworks for writing modern Web front ends. I don’t want to spark any heated debates, but I think that it’s safe to state that it’s all about how much work the application does on the server and how much it does on the client. Clearly, any solution centered on the client side of the Web has the potential to be more responsive and, maybe more importantly, much less impactful on the server. On the other hand, there’s the learning curve and extra programming work that has to be done with JavaScript or, at best, TypeScript.

Blazor is an interesting and warmly welcomed attempt to enable developers to build client-centric applications using, for the most part, C# and the .NET runtime. As Blazor evolves, more and more features will be added to make it provide nearly the same set of capabilities as Angular, React or Vue. In the end, writing a Blazor application will be a matter of stitching together HTML and CSS using C# code, the Razor template language, and JSON data downloaded from some HTTP endpoints.

Cutting Edge - Online Users, Streaming and Other SignalR Goodies
If you ever used any version of SignalR for the classic ASP.NET platform, you should be quite familiar with the concept of a hub. In SignalR a hub is the component that enables compatible client and server applications to arrange bidirectional remote procedure calls, from client to server and from server back to connected clients.

“Perhaps it is simpler to say that Intel…was disrupted”
Want to make a 10” PC but use a chip Intel said could only be used for 9.7” PC, then you would forego discounts or promotions. Want to use discrete graphics on a low power PC? Same problem.

These go to market programs might all be totally fine/legal/etc. BUT they create ecosystem incentives to look elsewhere.

This fine grained pricing created all sorts of challenges. But it also warps how R&D is done and where features/investments go.
