This is a guide that everyone can use to learn about the practice of front-end development. It broadly outlines and discusses the practice of front-end engineering: how to learn it and what tools are used when practicing it in 2019.
It is specifically written with the intention of being a professional resource for potential and currently practicing front-end developers to equip themselves with learning materials and development tools. Secondarily, it can be used by managers, CTOs, instructors, and head hunters to gain insights into the practice of front-end development.
The book should not be considered a comprehensive outline of all resources available to a front-end developer. The value of the book is tied up in a terse, focused, and timely curation of just enough categorical information so as not to overwhelm anyone on any one particular subject matter.
The intention is to release an update to the content yearly. This is currently the fourth year an edition has been released.

While I was doing the work to host my Blazor search app within my website I realised I'd need to update the deployment pipeline I use for my blog. The process being used was very similar to the one used for the DDD Sydney website, but tweaked for use with Hugo. As it was setup a while ago I used the UI designer in Azure Pipelines, not the YAML approach so this seemed like the perfect opportunity for an overhaul.

A few months ago, I wrote a blog post about the DebuggerDisplay attribute. This is a managed attribute that lets you customize how you view objects in debugging windows by “favoriting” specific properties. Since that post, we’ve streamlined DebuggerDisplay’s behavior with Pinnable Properties, a new managed feature available for Visual Studio 16.4!

We all heard about WASM, capabilities, and possibilities. Other languages and runtimes such as Rust have their official way to run their code in the browser and for .NET, the only official way is to use Blazor which is a front-end framework.
Blazor is good, but it’s a complete package for developing the whole frontend application. What if I like to use .NET libraries inside my old JS application that is already in production?

Now that Microsoft has shipped .NET Core 3.1, the next stop on the .NET Core roadmap is just plain old .NET 5 with no "Core" and no "Framework" -- it's all just .NET from here on.
Due in November 2020, .NET 5 will mark the company's transformation from the aging, proprietary, Windows-only .NET Framework to a modern, open-source, cross-platform .NET.
