Chris Sainty provides hands-on code samples on how to use Web APIs to interact with Blazor, an experimental framework from the ASP.NET team that allows developers to write C# and Razor code and have it run in the browser via WebAssembly.

Things are happening fast for ASP.NET Core, as Microsoft just released a new Version 2.2.0 preview while a recent developer survey indicates the Web dev framework is quickly becoming a mainstream option.
.NET development tool specialist JetBrains has launched ReSharper Ultimate 2018.2, with performance improvements, support for C# 7.3 and initial support for the hot new Blazor project, which aims to allow for C#-based Web development.
The recent release of Visual Studio 2017 15.8 featured a bevy of improvements for Web developers, ranging from new Docker container to Azure Functions functionality.
If you want to impress your boss (or client) with your diligence in generating documentation for your Web Service, then you need Swagger. That it will also make it easier for you to run tests on your service and check for typical errors is just icing on the cake.
Blazor is the Microsoft toolset that exploits the WebAssembly standard to let you write C# code that will run in your browser. Here's how to set up Visual Studio 2017 and create your first app.
It includes new project reference functionality, support for operating on parameter lists, new types to enforce explicit checks, improved JSX support, a better error UX and much more.
Microsoft added new Web app tutorials -- covering Django and Flask -- to its Python documentation for Visual Studio and its open source little cousin, the cross-platform Visual Studio Code editor.
Microsoft's TypeScript team just shipped the release candidate for the upcoming TypeScript 3.0, incorporating many new features dealing with project references, a new 'unknown' type and more.
TypeScript 2.9 has shipped with several new editor features added along with some language/compiler features.
