Bitcoin Builder's Primer

Intro to Full-Stack Dapp Development

It's time to make Bitcoin fun again.
The Bitcoin Builder's Primer is an engaging and comprehensive course designed to help beginners harness the power of the Bitcoin ecosystem and develop cutting-edge decentralized applications.

Throughout this course, you'll gain an in-depth understanding of Bitcoin's inner workings, development fundamentals, transaction mechanisms, and scripting capabilities. As we dive deeper into the world of Bitcoin, we'll explore how L2 technology like Stacks can help you create versatile and robust dapps.

Our hands-on approach will lead you through the development of a simple dapp allowing you to use Bitcoin to reserve an NFT, and use Stacks and Clarity to verify the transaction occurred and mint the NFT to the user. You'll learn how Bitcoin works and how we can expand its functionality without compromising security with Stacks and Clarity.

This course will equip you with the necessary tools to design, build, and integrate your dapp frontend using React and the Hiro wallet.

By the end of the course, you'll have the skills, knowledge, and confidence to develop innovative dapps on the Bitcoin blockchain, tapping into the most significant opportunity for developers today.

Join us on this exciting journey into the realm of Bitcoin development and unleash the full potential of blockchain technology to shape the future of decentralized applications.
