Though I have never been a fan of ASP.NET MVC, I believe the new Blazor software is a step in the right direction as it is beginning to return to some of the ease-of-use that made WebForms so successful while allowing developers to conform to the C# language on both the client and server sides of the equation.
As WebForms drifts into obscurity, I don't see Microsoft suddenly dropping the Blazor Platform once it has been released for commercial development. If they did this, the company would have no web development standard to rely on.
That being said, I see Blazor being refined into a more WebForms like environment that will return web development to the same ease-of-use paradigm that made such Microsoft tools so popular...

I encourage you to go back and read what the MSM wrote about him when he ran against Obama the first time. His "Bomb, Bomb Iran" comment. And the fact that amazingly, HE TOO has a "Foundation" that takes money from the likes of George Soros (a Devout Globalist, who has a stated goal of destroying America, and Capitalism, and a shameless Nazi supporter who said he lost no sleep over what he did).
Funny how the theme changes when he dies. My opinion of him will never change. As a libertarian, I view him as a war monger who profited from big military contractors.

The king who is situated anywhere immediately on the circumference of the conqueror's territory is termed the enemy.
The king who is likewise situated close to the enemy, but separated from the conqueror only by the enemy, is termed the friend.

That's the most honest thing I've read in this thread, and reflects the reality as I see it, and tried to state it. If he was Pro-Trump he would be demonized as a Nazi, Baby-Killer, SongBird, WarMonger. But like a TYPICAL Politician, he wanted good press in his dying days, so he went the other way. And "Look, all is forgotten!" LOL!
I wonder what are your strategies for learning a new technology. Do you read one or more books first to get a grasp of what a certain technology is capable for, or do you start developing or practicing creating apps after reading some articles and then googling the missing pieces along the way as you code? I know people who never read books cover to cover and just learn on the go.
I like to have a better grasp of the technology first before starting a project, so I try to read a beginner book first, then some intermediate to advanced books, sometimes before even trying to create an app. Sometimes I just try to have a big picture of all the capabilities of a certain technology before starting to code and just go back to a certain topic when I am about to code. It is sometimes a problem of learning to much firsts before starting coding.
If you try to go and immediately code after reading a few tutorials, you may be able to create a full app without entirely knowing the full capabilities of the technology, and so you may try to do certain things the wrong way when there are a more official way on doing it.
Let's put React.js for example. I can simply learn react by looking at the "Getting Started" and some basic concepts, and then start coding immediately. But then I will miss concepts like redux and other patterns if I don't read an entire book.
What are your thoughts? What is the better way to learn and be comfortable with a certain technology?
I always read first, go through a few tutorials then usually dive in. But always go back and read more to pick up advanced concepts. The stuff I'm trying to learn now I've read/reading 3 books, one of them 1600+ pages before writing any code.
