Turbocharged platform development with Xamarin and Blazor

Blazor is a .NET web framework that runs in any browser. Authoring Blazor apps uses C#/Razor and HTML. No JavaScript needed.
Blazor uses only the latest web standards. No plugins or transpilation needed. It runs in the browser on a real .NET runtime (Mono) implemented in WebAssembly that executes normal .NET assemblies. It works in older browsers too by falling back to an asm.js based .NET runtime.
Xamarin.Forms exposes a complete cross-platform UI toolkit for .NET developers, allowing to build fully native Android, iOS, Universal Windows Platform, Linux, MacOs, Tizen, tvOS, watchOS, PWA apps using C# in Visual Studio.
Using both technologies in parallel allows development acceleration of 360 portal ecosystems complete with native mobile apps, mobile PWA, LOB website through code, CI and expertise sharing.
