Quest4Designs’ Notes:

  • Every user/new developer needs to have knowledge of algorithms.
  • Understanding how to control the computer, such as instructing it to loop or call functions.
  • Comprehension of the execution process is crucial.
  • Smart contracts are objects based on a key-value pair system, where the key name represents a category and the value represents the field.
  • Basic knowledge of the DERO blockchain operation, including the account model, is essential.
  • Proficiency in using the Terminal on Linux is necessary.
  • Competency can be determined through peer review.
  • Best practices in Golang will be established soon.
  • Currently, there are no best practices for smart contracts, but there is a recognition of the need for them.
  • Smart Contract Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) include Biso, Apollo, and Six.
  • With every new release, a video should be created to discuss the code’s functionality and operation.
  • The learning curve includes developing “Dreams” by Six of Clubs, which encountered a bug in smart contracts due to a developer’s exploit.
  • Apollo’s VM image comes equipped with all necessary developer tools.
  • Moral Priest suggests using a container for operating system compatibility, syncing nodes, etc., as it ensures good performance without compatibility issues.
  • DERO’s development is gamified to enhance engagement.
  • Prerequisite knowledge for developing on DERO includes algorithms, basic and generic programming, REST API, and interactions.
  • Arcanesphere is a recommended resource for useful DERO links.
