    It will never pay the bills for me, but it might pay for the odd toy.
    Doing work for small software house and their client along with writing an application wanted someone to take care of their wp site. It's a good way to gain rep with the end client and getting more work out of them.

    Also, it can be a nice earner if you host a few of these in the cloud. I think the software house is charging £250pm for hosting and basic support.

    Probably a random number generator. That was my first example script I created (well, copy/pasted) - stick to what I know

    Blazor has been on my radar since I saw this post last year. Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

    It's finally moved from 'experimental' to 'preview' status so will officially ship in a future release of .Net Core.

    Blazor Graduates from Experiment to Preview -- Visual Studio Magazine

    I'm so looking forward to finally closing the lid on the snakepit of Javascript frameworks and libraries. Using C# and Razor for client-side web application development, including SPA, and all that promises* is going to be worth the wait.

    *From end to end development integration (including debugging) within Visual Studio with C# code on client and server for things like TDD, Validation, cross-project library standardisation and Razor component/templates, to being hostable on Azure Storage as static web files, using Azure Functions for 'Azure serverless web applications', which I see as being a big thing when the cost savings are realised for restricted access web applications where resource planning and therefore costing will be predictable. All managed via Azure Devops. Bring it on.

    Have grabbed the recently released 2019 version of Visual Studio and will be playing around with Blazor and the above so I can say I've x months/years experience of it on my CV when clients want those skills.

    Edit: This link is a great starting point for all things Blazor:

    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    The the dvd in question, it appears that it does.

    Though it did take undiluted Fairy Liquid(tm) to do it successfully.

    Other than that, Z80 FORTRAN, it's the coming thing.

    gosh, I tinkered with Fortran over 40 years ago.
