Today’s guest is Daniel Roth, a Program Manager on the ASP.NET team at Microsoft. He works on building frameworks for web developers, including ASP.NET Core and Blazor. He has previously worked on various parts of .NET, including System.Net, WCF, XAML, and ASP.NET. And his passions include building frameworks for modern Web frameworks that are simple and easy to use.
In this episode, Jeffrey and Daniel explore the world of Blazor DevOps! They take a look at the future potential of Blazor becoming the next desktop or native programming model, why you should use Blazor, the long-term vision for Blazor beyond what’s being released this year, and what the DevOps environment looks like for a Blazor server-side app (from a developer’s workstation all the way to running it and supporting it in production). Daniel also gives listeners his follow-up recommends on how to get started with Blazor and gives tons of practical tips if you’ve already gotten started.
