Learn Blazor with online courses and programs

Blazor is a technology that allows web developers to create interactive web applications using the same language, syntax, and APIs they may already know. Learn more about Blazor to enhance your web development knowledge.

What is Blazor? 

Blazor is an open-source web framework developed by Microsoft. It enables developers to write client-side code in C# and leverage the .NET framework, which can provide a rich experience for end users.Footnote 1

The term Blazor is a combination of a browser and Razor. Razor is used in C# web development and the Razor syntax can also support Visual Basic language to create dynamic content for websites, such as forms and interactive menus.Footnote 2

One of the things that makes Blazor effective is that it can run on the browser itself via WebAssembly rather than through a plugin. But what is Blazor WebAssembly? It is a way of creating interactive web applications using the .NET and C# programming languages. WebAssembly uses web standards to allow .NET code to run directly in the browser without needing a server. All major browsers in the market today include WebAssembly as standard, so client-side Blazor pages will work on iOS, Android, Linux, and Windows-based browsers.Footnote 3

If you’re considering whether to use Blazor or Angular, it’s worth understanding that both are web development frameworks, but that they have key differences: Angular is TypeScript-based tool that is suited for building client-rendered web applications.Footnote 4
