Building modern applications with Blazor and GraphQL

Mar 2, 2022 · West Yorkshire, United Kingdom

LeedsSharp are pleased to present our next in person event by Michael Staib on building modern applications with Blazor and GraphQL

Blazor and GraphQL combined will revolutionize how we build rich SPA applications with pure .NET.

Blazor, for the first time in years, gives us .NET developers the ability to develop applications that run in the browser. This allows us to use the knowledge we acquired in the backend or desktop applications and use it in web applications.

GraphQL, on the other hand, changed how we work with data fetching. With GraphQL, the frontend developer defines the interface between the frontend and the backend. We no more have friction between backend and frontend developers and can iterate much faster.

Let us explore how to put those two technologies together and change how we design our UI components. With GraphQL, we want to build reactive applications where the data is not static. GraphQL Clients are no longer just glorified HTTP clients but provide proper state management solutions to keep your components updated and make your applications work on- and offline.

Together, we will dive into what state management means and how we can merge remote and local states to let you focus on using data and building application experiences.

Together, let us build a truly engaging next-gen application and push Blazor to the limit.

The talk will be approximately 1 hour
