Ready to master Polkadot blockchain development with Substrate
You've come to the right place!
Blockchain technology is the most disruptive force in years - and disrupting even blockchain technology itself is Polkadot. Polkadot is the step above other blockchains because it's the blockchain that combines all other blockchains together and allows all other blockchains to communicate with each other. At the moment there are thousands of different blockchains, and the fact that Polkadot is the first to combine them all is a huge competitive advantage. This mean Polkadot is growing exponentially despite being so new, and makes it likely to reach mass adoption.
Large tech companies and start-ups alike cannot hire developers who understand blockchain technologies fast enough, but there are so few resources published to help you truly understand what blockchains are used for, let alone build apps with them.
That's the purpose of this course: to be the best resource online for learning about Polkadot, the blockchain, and how to build apps with these cutting-edge technologies.
By the end of this course, you'll
- Be an expert Polkadot developer and even create customised blockchains with Substrate
- Be proficient at creating your own decentralised applications from scratch
- Make millions from NFTs Build a decentralised version of Uber Create your own bank Up to you!
In this course you'll cover
- What the Polkadot blockchain is, how it works, where Substrate plays a role, and why the combination of Polkadot and Substrate is so incredible
- Deep dive into Polkadot development using Substrate and Rust
- Full projects that will solidify your skills in writing dapps (decentralised apps), building your own fully customised blockchains, creating reusable pallets, and more
If you want to take advantage of the cutting-edge Polkadot blockchain while it's still new and rapidly growing, this course is for you. All you need is some programming experience and knowledge of how blockchains work in general.
What is Polkadot
Polkadot is a blockchain network. All the other blockchains are separate from each other and operate in isolation. What Polkadot does is combine all the blockchains into one network, which means that blockchains on Polkadot can communicate with each other while still retaining blockchain-specific characteristics. Polkadot is fast, secure, cost-effective, eco-friendly, and even supports *smart contracts* which are pieces of code that run on the blockchain, and which can replace your bank/real estate agency/ticket selling company/accountant/witch doctor. These factors combined make Polkadot poised to overtake both Bitcoin and Ethereum in popularity and adoption. What's more, is that Polkadot comes with Substrate. Substrate is a developer toolkit that makes it easy to create brand new, fully customised blockchains that run on the Polkadot network.
