I’ve been really interested in blockchain lately and was thinking of diving into the development side of things. I know dApps are a big part of blockchain, but I’m a bit clueless on how to start developing one. Specifically, what are the steps of designing and creating a dApp? What platforms are most commonly used and how are these dApps typically tested and deployed? Do you typically need a good background in coding or could a beginner make decent progress? I’m looking for some advice and guidance to help me get started. Any tips, tricks or resources you could point me towards would be much appreciated.
You’re onto something great with your interest in dApps, they’re a key part of the blockchain landscape. The basic process of creating a dApp starts with having a clear understanding of your application’s purpose. From there, you can start designing your smart contracts – these are self-executing contracts with the terms of the agreement between buyer and seller being directly written into lines of code.
For development platforms, Ethereum is one of the most widely used for its strong community support and wide functionality. Other options are platforms like EOS or Tron. A key part of the development phase is deciding on a user-friendly interface because dApps need a strong user experience to succeed.
For testing and deploying, you ideally have unit tests for each function and interaction in your smart contract. You deploy your dApp on blockchain using Ethereum’s Mist browser or the MetaMask Chrome extension. As for the coding experience, a good background in coding could be beneficial, specifically in Solidity as it’s the most used language for dApps. However, don’t let the lack of experience discourage you; there’s always room to learn. Check out coding YouTube tutorials, online courses, or get involved in the developer community.
