Recommendations for learning resources

Hello, I’d first like to say that I really appreciate the vision of Logos, and believe that the need and demand for these types of systems is only going to grow over the next decade. I am a full stack web developer, but I’ve just recently started getting into “Web 3” and blockchain technologies (yes, I know a bit late to the game here, lol).

Does anyone have any suggestions for preferred resources (books, guides, moocs, etc…) for getting up to speed with the technologies being leveraged for this system? I know that may be a bit complicated since this platform is pushing into new territory, but I’m just curious what others here have found to be helpful.

Thanks!

Hey there, it’s never to late to learn : )

What kind of resources are you thinking, technical, practical, philosophical?

For crypto/web3 in general the Bitcoin whitepaper is always my fav recommendation for serious beginners. It’s a 9 page masterpiece https://bitcoin.org/bitcoin.pdf

Complement it with these deeper dives

For the original web3 vision I tend refer people to Gavin Wood (technical version for you) ĐApps: What Web 3.0 Looks Like

Will ask the right people in the collective for more targeted technical resources on Logos.

Cheers!

Awesome, thanks for the recommendation! Ethereum/Solidity is one of the areas I’m considering jumping into.

As far as Logos development goes, you can watch the roadmap page as it has the milestones, updates, github linsk etc. It is still an early version so we have a big update coming soon https://roadmap.logos.co/

For any technical questions you might have please ask in https://forum.vac.dev/

I recommend you ask this question there too, as that is watched by our engineers and project leads.

Hi @DedLogick, and welcome to the Logos community!

You mentioned Ethereum and Solidity being the area you’d like to explore. My humble recommendation for diving into the Ethereum ecosystem is Patrick Collins and his plethora of resources on both YouTube and Github. Patrick has been an active and vocal Ethereum community ambassador and educator for years. I’m not a developer myself. However, last year as I was asking my developer friends about educating myself on blockchain development, many pointed me toward Patrick’s resources. Another great educator I would point out is Austin Griffin and his free SpeedrunEthereum platform.

Patrick Collins’ resources:
YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/@PatrickAlphaC
GitHub - https://github.com/PatrickAlphaC
Twitter - https://twitter.com/PatrickAlphaC

Austin Griffith’s resources:
SpeedrunEthereum - https://speedrunethereum.com/
Twitter - https://twitter.com/austingriffith

Hope these open the door to your blockchain journey!

Additionally, feel free to join the Logos public Discord community and engage in technical discussions, share how your blockchain development journey is going, or engage in more thought-provoking, ideological discussions with both Logos contributors and external community members.

Cheers!
