So, You can be a web3 developer who wants to start a journey with CELO, you may be a web2 developer who wants to start with the web3 development, or you may not be a developer at all and still, want to jump into web3 world and explore with it. For you guys and also many such scenarios, CELO got you covered, As we know CELO is a mobile-first ecosystem, and with this, it is trying to get blockchain to the masses, now CELO knows it very well, that by just providing the technology it will not make the bigger impact which it wants to achieve, so it has one of the best systems to help anyone so that one can start understanding the tech and also can contribute to the such huge goal.

In this article, I will be helping you to navigate your way, so that you can utilize the potential of CELO to its fullest.

Let’s get started

So as you search on the internet for the word CELO, The first link you will see will be after opening that you can see what CELO is doing

You must start with the CELO composer CLI, as it allows you to quickly build, deploy and iterate on dApps using CELO

And you can learn more about it here with this link

Or if you are familiar with EVM tools, you can start building with them too.

After that you can start here

As you can see there are Beginner tutorials, Intermediate Tutorials, and advanced tutorials, You can start by exploring the Beginner tutorials

In each section, the articles are arranged in an alphabetical manner, which can be confusing for you, So here I will be trying to link some tutorials with which you can start,(Shh-We are going to make this easier to navigate SOON)

  1. Transition from web2 to web3

  2. 3 simple steps to connect your metamask wallet to celo

You can find the above-shown page here tutorials

Filters-Filters are nothing but something exactly like tags, we authors add the tags to our articles so that it can be easy for you guys to catch an article with the help of tags, but I can understand that finding an article directly from the filters is difficult, so what you can do is, you can use filters after jumping into any one of the four Top cards which you can see in the photos, the top four cards are CELO Composer, Beginner Tutorials, Intermediate Tutorials, Advanced Tutorials, and in that finding a card with the help of filters will be helpful

You can see that there is one toggle switch on the right side in the filters section, it is for the filters you can get a combination of filters by selecting AND, like for example someone can select smart contract and solidity.
