Becoming a Blockchain developer can seem a daunting task in the big picture, even for developers.
Because there are so many random tools involved. There’s the Truffle suite, Hardhat, Waffle, Web3.js, ethers.js, MetaMask, Solidity, Vyper, the Remix IDE, and so on.
Which one should you start with? How do they all fit together? Do you really need to know them all?
Well, I’m going to simplify this for you in this guide and walk you step by step through getting started as a Blockchain developer.
