Interview with Blazor WebAssembly Succinctly Author Michael Washington

The following is a brief interview with Succinctly author Michael Washington, whose second edition of Blazor WebAssembly Succinctly was recently published. You can download the book from our ebook portal.

What updates does this second edition of Blazor WebAssembly Succinctly cover? Which are most important?

This edition turned out to be a huge rewrite. Microsoft has improved so many things with Blazor since the first edition of this book. Things are much easier; there is less code required to do the same thing. However, this required me to rewrite nearly 75% of the code and recreate almost all the screenshots and there are a lot!

Are you excited about any updates coming to Blazor WebAssembly in the near future? Or released since you finished writing this book?

This biggest change is MAUI. This is essentially running Blazor on the desktop. Think of Microsoft Windows Forms technology but cross-platform (Android, iOS, macOS, Windows). This is what some people have used Blazor WebAssembly for in the past, but there are certain limitations that MAUI doesn’t have, such as accessing the entire file system on the user’s computer. However, Blazor WebAssembly is great for PWAs (progressive web applications). These are applications that can run offline on a person’s mobile device or web browser.

What other books or resources on this topic do you recommend?

There are a lot of YouTube videos on Blazor now, but the resource I use the most is still because that takes you to, and they literally update the content there every day.

What would you say is the most challenging part of writing Succinctly books?

There is a long editorial process. Because technology changes so fast, you have to consider the future. I find it best to stick with core concepts that you know will have lasting utility for the readers.

Do you have a blog page or a website where people can find you?
