Zilliqa’s dev evangelist, Arnav Vohra, is about to launch a programming course for Zilliqa and Scilla

Scilla (Smart Contract Intermediate-Level Language) is the language with which smart contacts are written on the Zilliqa blockchain. 

It is a peer-reviewed language, created by academics from scratch. 

It has been designed as a principled language with security in mind and has an extensible static analysis framework and an automatic scanner to help developers identify generic security vulnerabilities. 

Scilla provides developers with more sanity-checkers, alongside static checks, to simplify comprehensive testing. It is also susceptible to formal verification, so that mathematical evidence can be written to prove that a given contract meets certain security properties. 

The programming course on Zilliqa and Scilla

The programming course will be divided into three parts

  • an introductory part, 
  • a second part dedicated to Scilla, 
  • a third one dedicated to Javascript. 

The first part will consist of three videos, one dedicated to the introduction of the course, the second dedicated to an overview of the course and the resources available to developers, such as the toolkit, while the third will be an introduction to Zilliqa, smart contracts and the Scilla language. 

The second part will consist of seven videos, dedicated to general concepts, writing a simple test smart contract, crowdfunding contracts and tips for developers (Tips & Tricks). 

The third part will consist of two videos, with an introduction, the writing of a test contract and the creation of a ZRC2 wallet. 

In addition, those who will participate in the course will also be given Scilla and Zilliqa merch.

The videos will be short and simple, in order to make the course accessible to anyone who wants to start writing smart contracts in this language and will be published on the project’s YouTube channel

For the occasion, Zilliqa merchandise giveaways will also be organized in collaboration with The Crypto Merch.
