Fellow .NET Users,

We're back and in-person this month! It's hot outside, so come join us in the beautiful (and air conditioned) Gallup campus. Our next meeting will take place on Thursday, June 30th, starting at 6:00 PM. Our sponsor for this meeting, Gallup, will be giving away 2 $50 Amazon gift cards, 1 $25 Amazon gift card and a tumbler mug. This month we'll continue on the Blazor theme that was started last month and also learn about using AWS Dashboards. I hope you'll be able to join us for what I'm sure will be an awesome meeting.

Extending Blazor Components by Martinson Ofori, Ph.D.,

Blazor is quickly becoming the framework for building interactive web applications with .NET. As  Microsoft puts it, “Blazor apps are based on components. A component in Blazor is an element of UI, such as a page, dialog, or data entry form”. Today, there are several awesome Blazor component libraries such as SyncFusion, Radzen, Telerik, and MudBlazor to speed up development!

Despite this awesomeness, we may run into scenarios where a component library does not quite meet the needs of our project. This tutorial looks at some real-world examples of components Gallup has customized on top of the material design framework – MudBlazor.
