    πŸ‘‰ What is Blazor? And why’s it so exciting?

    What started as a prototype in 2017 has become one of the hottest technologies in the .NET ecosystem. Blazor is Microsoft’s new front-end framework for building single page applications using C#, not JavaScript. That’s right, C# running in your browser. No plugins, transpilation or voodoo magic involved - just web standards.

    In this talk, you'll learn all about this game changing platform and how it brings choice back into front-end development.

    πŸ‘‰ Air Quality, Azure Functions, and Spider Eggs

    Good quality air is important. After all, everyone breathes. But dig a little deeper into the subject and most of what you find is what we don't know. Is air pollution produced by local traffic? Does it waft in on the breeze? Are there times when I really shouldn't go out for a run?

    In this talk I'll describe how you can build your own connected air quality sensor and get data from it. I'll touch on embedded devices the MQTT protocol, LoRa networking, Azure IoT Hub and Azure Functions, along with our Connected Humber effort to...
