Text Blob on top of component ... help!

What seems to be the problem:
Shared with CloudApp

I am getting this text blob but I THINK I am following the docs:

From Docs: By default in 1.x, Livewire renders your page-level components using a traditional Blade layout located in resources/layouts/app.blade.php. In 2.0, Livewire uses the same layout file as a default, however, it now expects you are using the new Blade component $slot syntax in the layout.

BTW I think the link SHOULD be resources/views/layouts/app.blade.php

Steps to Reproduce:

That is my layout file: https://gist.github.com/a7bb5bb655f6d0cc5843c56e3ca2163e

And my route: Route::prefix('tech')->group(function() { Route::get('sandbox', SandBox::class); });

Are you using the latest version of Livewire: YES

Do you have any screenshots or code examples:
