Build an online browser game from scratch using Blazor WebAssembly, Web API, Entity Framework & SQLite in .NET Core 3.1.
What you'll learn
- Build a complete web application with Blazor WebAssembly, Web API, Entity Framework and a SQLite database
- Razor components: Communication, data binding, event handling, the @code block & more
- Forms in Blazor WebAssembly with Validation & displaying validation messages
- Utilize built-in forms components like InputText, InputCheckbox, InputSelect & more
- Authentication & authorization with the AuthenticationStateProvider & the AuthorizeView component
- Authentication with JSON Web Tokens (JWT)
- Use Web API as web service with the HTTP request methods GET, POST, PUT & DELETE by utilizeing the Model-View-Controller (MVC) pattern
- Use Entity Framework with code-first migrations to store your data in a SQLite database
- ...and much more!
- Basic web development knowledge with C# & HTML is preferable
Blazor WebAssembly is turning the web development world upside down.
With Blazor you can keep coding every part of your web application - meaning front end and back end - with the programming language and the framework you love - C# and .NET.
We will dive right into the code by first having a look at the standard example project of Blazor WebAssembly and then we already build the main project of this course, which is a classic online browser game, where users can create an army of fighters and send them into battle against other users.
Together with some customization options and climbing the leaderboard, this application will teach you how to use Blazor WebAssembly with Razor components in a playful way.
We will have a look at data- and event binding, communication between components, forms with their built-in components and validation options, how to use views only authorized users can see, how to make calls to a web service, and much more.
Additionally, you will learn how to build the back end of the browser game with a Web API and Entity Framework to store all the data in a SQLite database.
By the end of this course, you will have what it takes to call yourself a full stack Blazor web developer.
With your new skills, you are ready to conquer any upcoming .NET web development project you want to build yourself or any project that is requested by a recruiter.
The only tools you need are Visual Studio, Postman, SQLite, and a browser like Chrome or Firefox.
Everything is available for free and also cross-platform! So you can follow this course on Windows and macOS.
