Tezos Developer Portal

Developer Support Channels:


1. Hello World

Very Basic Introductory Materials

2. Write a Smart Contract

Write smart contracts in your choice of syntax. Code will compile to Michelson, the smart contract language of the Tezos blockchain.

3. Use a Library

Use a library to integrate Tezos with your application.

4. Explore the Blockchain

Use a block explorer to analyze the Tezos blockchain.
