Joining Jeffrey Palermo today is Jeff Fritz! Jeff is the Senior Program Manager in Microsoft’s Developer Division working on the .Net Community Team. He's a long-time web developer and survivor of the .com era. He has built large software-as-a-service applications in every version of ASP.NET, with a focus on performance and scalability. Four days a week you can catch Jeff writing code and teaching folks how to get ahead in the software industry on a live video stream called, “Fritz and Friends” on Twitch! You can also catch Jeff on a previous episode of The Azure DevOps Podcast; “Party with Palermo at the Microsoft MVP Summit!”


This week, the two Jeffreys will be discussing .Net Core and Blazor! They talk about Jeff’s background in the industry and what he’s currently up to, his current findings in the space of .Net Core 3.0 and Blazor, his experimentation with Blazor and Akka.NET, and whether or not the Blazor model will become the norm for web applications. Jeff also reviews what’s available for developers to use today vs. what they may have to wait a bit for, and gives his recommendations on what listeners should follow up on to learn more about Blazor and Akka.NET.
