Smart contract development is no different than other types of software development. Code is written to perform a certain task, and there are tools that help make this process easier. The Ethereum ecosystem contains many mature tools to help build Web3 projects, but what about a newer ecosystem, such as Flow?
If you’ve been following along with this series so far, you’ll know that the Flow blockchain is optimized for digital asset creation and management. Additionally, its smart contract language, Cadence, improves upon other languages’ pitfalls through its resource-based approach and a strong, static type system.
