Getting started with DApps (Create decentralized apps)
What you'll learn
- Understand what Blockchain and DApp is
- Locally create a blockchain to better understand its operations
- Send transactions in our local Blockchain
- Creating a DApp from scratch using the HardHat framework
- Creating and deploying a smart contract on our local blockchain
- Creating and deploying a smart contract on cloud
- The only prerequisite is a computer with internet connection
The term DApp comes from “decentralized application” and these are applications that run on the blockchain.
Being decentralized, they do not obey the control of any single authority. They can better safeguard user privacy and resist censorship.
This type of application is taking the world by storm along with Web3, NFTs and the decentralized authority available nowadays on the Blockchain. Everyone is talking about them and developers good with these technologies will be very well paid!
With that being said, getting started with DApps is not easy, given the vast amount of options available out there.
That's why I created this simple course on DApps to help you get started on your path of developing in this field.
You will first learn how to set up a development environment on your local machine and install on it all the programming languages, IDEs and frameworks that are necessary to start writing code.
Then, we will create a local Blockchain in order to better understand its presented definition and the transactions it provides.
We will also write our very own Smart contract and deploy it both on our local Blockchain and on a testnet one, on cloud.
All these operations will not require any money, so do not worry about that, you are here to learn!
After finishing this course, you will have a clear idea on what DApps are, how a blockchain and a smart contract work and also how to set up a local environment on your machine that will get you set up to start developing them on your own.
So if all of this sounds interesting, I look forward to seeing you in the first lecture!
