Developing on Polkadot – From Smart Contract to Your Own Blockchain

Bill Laboon: Head of Education and Grants at Web3 Foundation | Virtual participation

Polkadot, as an L0, allows for developers to work at very different levels – from developing a simple smart contract all the way, to providing an additional chain-level feature, all the way to designing your own blockchain. In this talk, we’ll cover the benefits and drawbacks of these various development approaches, and how to choose which is right for your application. We’ll also briefly cover using Rust and Rust-based DSLs for every level of the stack.
