Blockchain Development on Tezos:From Constants to Contract Publishing

The course on blockchain development on Tezos by ForkLog and Tezos Ukraine consists of five lessons and focuses on rookie devs.

We start with the basics: smart contract structure and LIGO syntax. Then you will learn to write contracts and interact with the blockchain. In the end, you will be able to create a test token and NFT on the Tezos network.

IMPORTANT: The community updates the Tezos protocol on a regular basis, while bakers discontinue outdated testnets. If the testnet in the example fails to work, please use a relevant RPC link from the list on Taquito’s website before publishing your smart contract.
