Complete Blazor (WASM & Server) and ASP.NET API Development
A Willingness to Learn
Learn how to build a RESTful API using ASP.NET Core 6 / 7, and then consume it in a modern Blazor Single Page Application. Along the way, we will review clean coding principles and patterns, RESTful Standards, logging tools, database development and management, and application testing and deployment strategies.
By the end of the course, we would have built a single-page application using Blazor (Server and WebAssembly) that will serve as a stand-alone client app, consuming and interacting with an API. We will look at handling authentication using JSON Web Token (JWT) and using this JWT to communicate with the API for all other operations that our app will support.
ASP.NET Core is Microsoft’s modern, cross-platform framework for building enterprise-ready web applications. Its suite of frameworks allows us to develop RESTful APIs and now thanks to Blazor, build robust client apps to interact with our API.
Why Learn ASP.NET Core (.NET 6)
Microsoft .NET is the platform that drives the business technology of many of the top corporations in the United States and many other countries. It is the predominant technology used to drive enterprise-scale business technology. Companies have chosen .NET because of its proven scalability, reliability, and support.
The .NET language of choice to learn is C#, as it is among the most widely used languages today. It’s a general-purpose programming language that can handle almost any problem, from desktop to mobile to dynamic web applications. As such, there is a high demand across the world for .NET developers in a variety of industries, which means that more jobs are available for candidates with a foundation built upon .NET technologies.
Why Develop With Blazor?
Blazor WebAssembly or Blazor Server
Blazor can run your client-side C# code directly in the browser, using WebAssembly. Because it’s real .NET running on WebAssembly, you can re-use code and libraries from server-side parts of your application.
Alternatively, Blazor can run your client logic on the server. Client UI events are sent back to the server using SignalR – a real-time messaging framework. Once execution completes, the required UI changes are sent to the client and merged into the DOM
Deploy To Microsoft Azure Cloud
Azure Web App Service is key to deploying the API and Blazor Server Applications. We will also enlist the use of Azure SQL for the Database to support our API.
Build A Strong Foundation in .NET Core Programming:
- Build a fully data-driven REST Web API using cutting-edge technology
- Build a Single Page Application client-side UI using Blazor Server AND Blazor WebAssembly
- Connect to an existing Database using Entity Framework Core
- Repository Pattern and Dependency Injection
- Progressive Web Application with Blazor
- Setup Logging using Serilog
- Setup API documentation using SwaggerUI
- Understand the REST design principles
- Understand C# 10 and .NET Core Web Syntax
- Use NSwag to speed up API Client Development
- Understand user Authentication using JWT (JSON Web Tokens)
- Store JSON Web Tokens using Local Browser Storage
- Handle Blazor Application User Authentication State
- Consume REST Web API in Blazor Application
- Understand how to use Models, DTOs and AutoMapper
- Manage Packages with NuGet Manager
- Setup GitHub for Source Control
- Deploy Applications and Database to Microsoft Azure
Content and Overview
To take this course, you will need to have some knowledge of Object Oriented Programming, if not C#. Even if you have little exposure to the .NET development stack, this course is beginner-friendly and full of development tips.
This is a huge course. Over 16 hours of premium content, but smartly broken up to highlight a set of related activities based on each module in the application that is being built. We will also look at troubleshooting and debugging errors as we go along; implementing best practices; writing efficient logic and understanding why developers do things the way they do. Your knowledge will grow, step by step, throughout the course and you will be challenged to be the best you can be.
We don’t do things the perfect way the first time; that is different from the reality of writing code. We make mistakes and point them out and fix them around them. By doing this, we develop proficiency in using debugging tools and techniques. By the time you have finished the course, you will have moved around in Visual Studio and examined logic and syntax errors so much, that it will be second nature for you when working in the .NET environment. This will put your newly learned skills into practical use and impress your boss and coworkers.
The course is complete with working files hosted on GitHub, with the inclusion of some files to make it easier for you to replicate the code being demonstrated. You will be able to work alongside the author as you work through each lecture and will receive a verifiable certificate of completion upon finishing the course.
