Aloha .NET MAUI! Extending Apps To Mobile and Desktop With Blazor Hybrid


In this session we are going to showcase the exciting Blazor Hybrid support which is included in .NET MAUI. Specifically we will focus on the BlazorWebView control that allows Razor components to be rendered into an embedded Web View, allowing them to run natively on mobile and desktop devices. In this rendering model, Razor components load and execute very quickly and have full access to the native capabilities of the device through the .NET platform. We will also explain how you can get the most out of your code assets by leveraging the exact same web UI components across mobile, desktop, and web.
