FAQ

Here are some common questions that people asked who want to learn a Web3:

Should I learn Javascript before I dive into Web3 and Solidity? I don't have much experience with coding bare. A minimal exposure to code and some HTML/CSS.

There are Web3 jobs where you only do smart contracts, with emphasis on security and optimization of each line, all in Solidity.

Solidity launguege looks pretty similar to Javascript.

Other Web3 jobs will require you build nice UI/UX in React (most probably) and you'll only need the basic knowledge to interact with a smart contract from JS, but you should be really good building UIs.

So I'd recommend: 1. Give Solidity a try. 2. Give ReactJS a try, and see how it feels.

If you're more passionate about UIs, you can focus on that and learn just the basics of Smart Contracts in Solidty (that wouldn't take many days I think), then you go all-in into React.

But if you don't like building UIs and prefer the Smart Contracts world, you can go all-in into Solidity and if you become a master of understanding and building SCs then the world is yours!

Then there are areas of specialization, like focusing on DeFi only, or NFTs only. There are so many possibilities!

Follow your passion and keep learning and I think this is the way!
