Welcome to Lumiweath!

It’s a great place to start if you want to know how blockchain works and how to become a dApp blockchain developer.

We’re going to take you step by step through the process of how to get started with blockchain programming using our easy-to-follow course.


So, you want to be a dApp developer?

Technically called dApp, perhaps you’re curious about the opportunities available in this space? 

This is the perfect place to be!

Let’s talk about what you need to do to become a blockchain developer or a dApp developer.

We’re going to cover:

  1. Understanding the blockchain landscape
  2. Building Solidity smart contracts on Remix
  3. Build websites with HTML and JavaScript
  4. Use Truffle or Hardhat to manage a dApp with Ganache
  5. Use Web3.js and MetaMask to interact with blockchain from a website
  6. Use a library like React to handle complex user interfaces

Understanding the blockchain landscape

Let’s talk about the first step: understand the blockchain landscape. This is the most general step of becoming a blockchain programmer.

You have to know about:

  • Blockchain 
  • Cryptocurrency
  • Exchanges to buy and sell cryptocurrency
  • Ethereum and other blockchains out there
  • Decentralization and why is it so revolutionary 
  • Smart contracts
  • Solidity coding language
  • NFT
  • Web3 

So all of these and more are terms and different things about the blockchain landscape that you should understand before you start jumping into building projects. 

That’s because understanding all of these terms and how the blockchain landscape is affecting the world and different industries is critical to being able to understand how it works.


What is the point of a smart contract and dApp in the first place?

For example, blockchain technology is revolutionizing finance and other industries as well, like web development, because you can build these decentralized web apps and other industries across the board.

Because with blockchain technology, you can integrate it into any software or system that is currently existing.

After you understand the blockchain landscape. you have to learn the Solidity coding language.

What is Solidity?

Solidity is the number one coding language for building dApps for the Ethereum blockchain.

The Ethereum blockchain is a blockchain specific for building a dApp. 

It was made to build decentralized applications so you can have software that uses blockchain’s decentralized technology. 

So, you have to learn the Solidity coding language because this language is used as the basis for building smart contracts and the basis of how you build any dApp or blockchain project.
