Blockchains are still prominent, and the industry is in desperate need of engineers right now. It's not just a lucrative field to work in, but it's also fascinating.
You'll need to be dedicated to your learning if you want to be a part of it and advance your career as a Web 3.0 developer.
I'll provide a road map and some great online resources I found after studying how to get started. In this article, you'll go from having no programming experience to being a Solidity and Blockchain specialist.
1. Learn About Smart Contracts and Solidity
Smart contracts are how the blockchain can be programmed. They are pieces of code that have been distributed to the blockchain and are written in a language that blockchain nodes can understand.
2. Learn the fundamentals of blockchain technology
A blockchain is a digital log of duplicated transactions distributed across the blockchain's complete network of computer systems.
Blockchains are a fantastic piece of technology, but they aren't easy to understand. To comprehend what you'll subsequently build on, you'll need to devote some time to it.

3. Creating Zombies is a great way to learn about solidity.
A Gamified Programming course, where you'll learn how to develop Smart Contracts while creating a Zombie factory to start your world-conquering plan, turns out to be one of the best tools for learning about solidity.
You learn by playing a game.
4. Learn Web3.js and Ethers.js to connect your dAPP
You can use Web3.js to create clients that interface with the Ethereum Blockchain. It's a collection of libraries that, among other things, allow you to transfer Ether from one account to another, read and write data from smart contracts, and build smart contracts.
The ethers.js library intends to be a comprehensive and lightweight interface to the Ethereum Blockchain and its ecosystem. It was created with ethers.io in mind but has evolved into a more general-purpose library.
5. Develop a Decentralize App
To enhance your grasp of blockchain programming, start building your DApps.
6. Join Communities
When it comes to learning or working in the tech world, communities are essential. So far, the web3 community has been one of the most accommodating. I'll highlight a few of them that I found to be quite helpful and working with great devs. It is pretty beneficial to have the impression that you are not alone, and guess what?
7. Create a Portfolio and Build Projects
In your job search, having a portfolio of projects can be beneficial. Build, build, build if you want to work in this profession.
I hope you find this helpful 😊
I will also keep this article up to date. If you know of any additional resources that would be useful, please let me know in the comments section, and I will add them to the list.
I intend to release several projects soon and create a blog post about them so that everyone can benefit.
See you in my next blog article. Take care!!!
