OSS Power-Ups: AngleSharp – Webinar Recording
The recording of our webinar, OSS Power-Ups: AngleSharp, with Florian Rappl, is available. This was the eleventh episode of our OSS Power-Ups series, where we put a spotlight on open-source .NET projects. Subscribe to our community newsletter to receive notifications about future webinars.
Ever wanted to know the internals of an evergreen web browser? How does HTML5 error correction work and why is it the cure to different looking webpages? But most importantly: How can we deal with webpages most efficiently in .NET? The AngleSharp project gives answers to all of these questions. It is – at its core – a headless browser engine, which has a modular architecture. If we only want to parse HTML then we get a state of the art HTML5 parser. In this session we cover the project and dive into some of the lesser known, but very important, parts of HTML5.
