The response you knew had to come: CryptoKitty-eating-CryptoZombies! A free coding tutorial aiming to make people more familiar with programming in Solidity. It is fun to see how you can set up a smart contract in Slidity, get help along the way and start dipping your toes into code.
I encourage you to take a look at CryptoZombies, if you have experience as a coder or not at this project powered by Loom. You'll have your own Dapp up and running in a few excellent guided lessons.
"CryptoZombies is an interactive code school that teaches you to write smart contracts in Solidity through building your own crypto-collectables game."
While not world changing in its own right, it is projects like this that show more people the potential of blockchain and make it so much easier to get started. Share this project with others who are interested to learn more about programming in Solidity.
Thanks to Fred Wilson @ AVC for sharing this!
