Hello readers, As some of you might remember, I’ve been taking my first steps into the development/coding world with .NET Blazor since end of 2021. While I didn’t blog about my coding adventures as much as I hoped for, I actually made pretty good progress, developing an app that is actually running in production within our MTT Trainer team:).

Hi all, I hope you all have great holidays this time around, giving you the opportunity to spend time with your family as well as having the opportunity to learn some new skills, which in my case means learning Blazor, a Framework within the DotNet family, allowing for “any-client” applications (browser, mobile device).
