Blockchain Developer RoadMap

Let's now talk about how to be a blockchain developer. A roadmap is basically what it is. Everyone has been talking about web 3.0 and Metaverse over the last few months. Blockchain is actually getting some support from it.

Everyone wants to become a blockchain developer.

i will help you understand the terminology and technology involved in blockchain development. I will also try to add it in the eye button. What is the best way to become a

blockchain developer?

Blockchain is a relatively new technology. There are many issues when you use a new technology. First, if you really want to learn it, there are not enough resources. The second is that even corporates, and even companies, don't know what their goals are. Right? They might not prefer to hire freshers when they need to hire blockchain developers. Some companies will still hire blockchain developers from the beginning, but they might not prefer to do so. Other companies train their employees. They are shifting their employees to the blockchain industry from those who are already employed. They understand the industry and how it works. It will also make it easier for them to look at how blockchain can be used in their company. Okay.

Then there's also the problem of lack of resources or lack of talent. First, there are two types of blockchain. There are two types of blockchain: a public and private one. First, you need to decide which one you want to enter. Since you are just starting out, I recommend that you start with the public blockchain. You can also start in the public blockchain to move on to private blockchain. What is the difference between private and public blockchain? Blockchain generally has data that is available through peer-to-peer networks. Anyone can see the data regardless of whether they are part of a network.

This is the only thing. This is a blockchain network. This network is open to anyone. Anybody can view the data. Companies have a different problem. This is a privacy issue. They might choose private blockchains, where only known entities are allowed to join the network. They aren't sharing their data with the rest of the world, but they can do that by creating private blockchains. The actual activity is happening in the public blockchain. You can see that Solana, Ethereum, and all the other big technology coming up are all public blockchain. Right! The public blockchain gives you an Ethereum-like platform. Ethereum is more than a currency, Ether, or a currency. Ethereum is a platform that allows you to build applications (DApps), which are the decentralized applications. Which language do you need to use? You can see that there are different languages for different platforms. Ethereum can be used with Solidity language.
It does support JavaScript and Python, however. This information is available in the documentation. Solidity is the preferred language. Rust is the preferred language for Solana. They have different languages when it comes to different platforms. Language shouldn't be a barrier. This technology should not be chosen based on language preference. Language is something you can learn at any time. It is much easier to learn a language than it is to switch between them. It is important to choose the right platform for you to use. Which public blockchain is best to use? Ethereum would be my choice, but not because it's the best, but because it has been around for a while. There are plenty of resources. You have good community support. There are many good YouTube videos. For more Ethereum videos, you can visit this channel. Important is that you have lots of resources. You won't get stuck, at least not on Ethereum. What happens next after you learn Ethereum? It doesn't mean that you have to stick with Ethereum.

There are many good alternatives on the market right now. Solana and Polkadot are two examples of good competition. Polkadot is a blockchain-based blockchain that looks very promising. You can also explore this. Don't limit yourself to one technology. This is the only reason it exists at this point, as it is still maturing. The more you learn about blockchain, the more options are available to you. You don't know which blockchain will be the most popular in the future. It will be much easier to master if you are familiar with everything. Let's also consider what it would be like to work for a company or if you wanted to go into private blockchain.

I don't like public blockchain as much. There are many options. There are two options: Hyperledger Fabric, and Corda. You can choose to explore either. Corda is actually easier than Hyperledger Fabric, because Corda uses Java. Hyperledger Fabric is an option. I love Java. You can choose JavaScript or Java. However, Hyperledger Fabric documentation is quite large. It is very large. Corda is simple. Corda is easy to use. You can learn something within a week. Hyperledger says that this is not true. It's been almost two years since I last used Hyperledger Fabric. I'm still exploring Hyperledger Fabric. Let's now return to the public blockchain. Which one should you prefer? Start with Bitcoin basics, then move on to Ethereum. Learn more about Ethereum. It is possible to love it. You can continue using the Ethereum blockchain. Then, you can build DApps to see how it works. If you don't like Ethereum, then switch to Polkadot or Solana. You can explore that. The best part is that you will know Ethereum so it will make it easier to jump onto a different blockchain. But you should also explore any new blockchain that is being developed. Solana, Polkadot, and Cardano all look promising. I would recommend exploring that platform to build an application. However, I am not certain if Cardano can actually build DApps. I haven't done it yet. But you could try Solana. That looks promising. Language, as I said, should not be a barrier. You are now ready to learn. This channel has a basic overview of blockchain. You can also find it on this channel. You can then move towards, I mean, if Ethereum is your favorite, you can keep going with that. There are playlists for Hyperledger Fabric and Cardano if you want to move to private blockchain.

but private blockchain is not recommended for everyone. It's extremely specific. Because I've worked in the industry, it is clear to me what their needs are. So I will be exploring private blockchain. Public blockchain is best for those who want to stay in the B2C market. I do not have any videos on Solana but you can look at the documentation. It's quite good. That's all. You can ask me any questions in the chat section. That's it! Goodbye. Take care.
