Simple Steps for Developing Decentralized Applications (DApps)

how-to-become-blockchain-developer

Many of the creators on Education Ecosystem have been asking the question “How can I create blockchain projects and build DApps and smart contracts without prior experience?”

The truth is, developing decentralized applications is not very different from traditional web development. The only real difference is that development is done specifically on the blockchain. For regular developers without experience developing DApps and smart contracts, it only takes spending a few hours reading documentation and you can be ready to go.

For projects on Education Ecosystem, we want to show that normal engineers are able to develop applications on blockchain platforms just as easily as they do other applications. To begin developing decentralized applications, start with the steps below:

  1. Understand the basics and learn a bit about blockchain technology.
  2. Learn how the process works.
  3. Start coding.

We’ve sourced some simple tutorials which will teach you how to build decentralized applications and smart contracts. You can find these tutorials below:

Now you’re ready to start building on the blockchain. If you aren’t already a creator then go to our creator page to find out how you can become one.
