I was fortunate enough to be asked to speak at the first of a new series of one day virtual conferences, .NET Conf: Focus on Blazor. This event is the first of many focus events being run throughout the year by Microsoft and the .NET Conf team. Each event deep dives on a specific technology with a mix of speakers from Microsoft and the community.

If you've not heard of .NET Conf before, it's a free 3 day virtual conference run by Microsoft to celebrate all things .NET. It's a fantastic event which covers a wide range of topics from top speakers, both from Microsoft and from the community.

The idea behind the focus event series is to provide single day virtual conferences, in the same style as .NET Conf, which target a specific technology. These events will be spread out throughout the year, where-as the full .NET Conf event is only held once a year. The other great thing about these events is that they are all recorded and made available via the Channel 9 site and YouTube. So if you're unable to tune in and watch live, then you can catch-up at your earliest convenience.

I gave a talk covering routing in Blazor. The talk is divided into two halfs, the first half is all about understanding the various parts which make up routing in Blazor. The second half is spent in Visual Studio running through various demos. There are definitely some deep dive parts, but hopefully it had something for everyone to take away.

There were so many great talks which covered a wide range of Blazor topics such as UX, state management, testing, authorization and authentication, custom component design, the list goes on. All the speakers did an amazing job, I really think the event was a great success and I'm very proud to have been a part of it.

If you didn't get the chance to watch the event live, then don't worry. I've linked the video of the whole event below so you can catch up on all the sessions - Including my talk on routing in Blazor.
