Static Site Generation and Umbraco

As the web has grown over the years, the demands on hosting for a site have also increased significantly. What once could easily be hosted on a shared hosting account, now needs to do so much more, from dynamic site generation, to load balancing and scaling on demand, and protection against cyber attacks. The hosting landscape is now more complex than ever. 

But what if we could go back? back to a simpler time when web pages were just plain old HTML files and hosting was cheap and simple? Well, that's what a growing number of developer communities are doing via static site generation. 

In this talk I will look at what is static site generation, what benefits it can bring over traditionally dynamic site generation and also present a proof of concept demo for how this could work in Umbraco to give us a best of both worlds approach.

Umblazing: an adventure with Blazor and Umbraco

Blazor is the new web framework on the block, let’s go on an adventure to see what it can do! 
This session will give an introduction to Blazor, a C# .Net web framework to run in the browser. We will discuss the technologies, explaining the various options for client side and server side Blazor applications then jump into a few examples including integrating with Umbraco as a headless CMS. 
This will be an introductory session for Blazor but will be for developers with some experience in .Net web technologies. The main outcomes will be an understanding of Blazor both client and server side and hopefully an enthusiasm to go explore it further!
