So you wanna blockchain, huh?

There are very few people who didn’t hear about the Blockchain or Cryptocurrencies, even outside the IT industry. I’ve decided to learn a little bit more about it. Here is a list of resources I’ll try to consume in the near future. I’ll try to keep the list up to date, and maybe provide summaries of the resources as separate posts:

  • Beginner’s Guide to Blockchain — Explaining it to a 5 Year Old - I’m a big kid, so the title appeals to me. This is by far the best explanation of the concept I could find, with an easy to understand analogy I can use while grabbing a beer with normal people.
  • CryptoZombies - Zombie game?! Yes, please. You’ll write Solidity contracts (contracts are the “blocks” containing code, interacting with other blocks, storing data, etc. Solidity is a language to write them) to create zombies and eat kittens (😱). If you’re an experienced dev, you can get up to speed with Solidity much faster than through this game, but… I have a special spot in my heart for zombie games!
