Building your personal online brand using Static Blazor Apps, one step at a time

We're told that by using services such as Medium, dev.to etc that we are diluting our personal brand. That we should be posting to our own site and building ourselves up. But making that move can seem huge! Rather than eating the elephant - which can seem impossible - how about slowly moving to your own space?

Build your brand whilst still using those great features that attracted you to your chosen platform in the first place.

With the joint power of client-side Blazor and static web apps in Azure, you no longer need to run web servers or App Services in order to host your site online. You can get set up in minutes!

In this session, we'll set up a new Blazor Wasm Application and Azure Function, deploy to Azure and then fetch blog posts from dev.to to link to them in our page.

We'll also talk about next steps - and how to eat the elephant one bite at a time - to create your personal brand!
