Summary

In this chapter, we learned about the different flavors of the Blazor web framework by doing some hands-on coding. We learned how we can easily build a powerful web application in Blazor in concert with other ASP.NET Core technology stacks by just applying our C# skills and without the need to write JavaScript. We saw how we can easily integrate features and capabilities that are already available in .NET, such as real-time functionality. We also learned how to perform basic form data bindings, state management, routing, and how to interact with the backend REST APIs to consume and pass data. Having to learn these basic concepts and fundamentals is crucial when you will be building real-world applications.

In the next chapter, you are going to explore web APIs in depth and data access for working with real databases.
