- Web3 provides a whole new environment ideal for developers to realize their aspirations by allowing them greater structural freedom and fewer financial burdens.
- Compared with the more sophisticated Web2 ecosystem, Web3 is still at its preliminary stage regarding infrastructures and development tools. Thus, it needs professional support to minimize the development difficulty for vast developers systematically.
- A powerful Web3 Engine can substantially enhance the development experience of Web3 developers with dApps by providing decentralized infrastructures, data management, standardized IDEs, and comprehensive interoperability.
The image of Web3, the new iteration of the Internet, is getting more and more vivid nowadays as it approaches with new projects springing out continuously. Among the many much-anticipated Web3 attributes, true asset ownership enabled by the decentralized blockchain technology has undoubtedly made Web3 appealing to its users, as they can finally take full control of their digital assets and monetize them in whichever way they please.
Fascinating indeed. As we rejoice over the benefits that Web3 can bring to its users, we might as well take a second think on behalf of another group of stakeholders in this, the Web3 developers. Is Web3 equally rewarding for its developers? What’s in it for the Web3 developers and the many more to join?
After witnessing the phenomenal success of Web3 projects like the world-trending blockchain game Axie Infinity, some may find the answer pretty straightforward: money and fame. It is certainly arousing to keep such goals as impetus when building a career in Web3 as a developer, yet there are many more to be found out and taken advantage of in the Web3 world.
A Free World to Explore
Unlike the well-developed Web2 ecosystem, where there already are solid technical infrastructures, enormous resources, and a massive amount of users, Web3, which derives from the novel technology of blockchain, appears more like a virgin land with the charm of infinite possibilities. For Web2 developers who would like to set foot in Web3, what they can foresee is freedom without the established hierarchy or financial burden caused by the dependence on servers in the Web2 world.
Web3 would also mean an ideal place to start things over for those adventurous Web2 developers who are bored with the maintenance routine of the mature Web2 infrastructure yet excited about building up a whole new world of Web3 as one of the few trailblazers. Developers could become founders and entrepreneurs to build up projects and a greater virtual world with new sets of social structures, regulations, economic systems, and even more based on Peer-to-Peer (P2P) decentralized networks.
How to Become a Web3 Developer?
Knowing the technical basics
To become proficient in Web3 development, the top priority for a developer is to build up some Web3 expertise, such as the principles of blockchain, concepts of smart contracts, and specifics of decentralized applications (dApp), to lay a cognitive foundation and find your ways to the skills to acquire and projects to build up. Whether it is a blockchain game, DeFi, NFT, or any other kind of dApp, core development and application development will always be the focus of Web3 developers.
Knowing the development tools
An effective Web3 developer should also have a good command of relevant tools, including the programming languages such as Solidity and Rust, and the right tech stack to back up their development work. Hackathons would be good places for developers to communicate and exchange their experience with tools that can best facilitate Web3 project development.
Compared with the mature toolsets in the Web2 ecosystem, existing toolsets for developing Web3 projects are still relatively new and immature, thus raising the development threshold for Web3 developers, especially the ones new to the field, and creating the need for professional and systematic support to actually minimize the development difficulty for vast developers.
A Professional System to be in Place
To satisfy the essential needs for minimizing the development difficulty for Web3 developers and, in the meantime, maximizing the user experience of Web3 applications, Rangers Protocol innovatively outlined its vision for a Web3 Engine, a professional system to power up the Web3 world with decentralized infrastructures, data management, standardized IDEs, and comprehensive interoperability to facilitate complex dApp development.
Through active team development and partner integration, Rangers Protocol has been constructing the Web3 Engine following a bottom-to-up structure consisting of Blockchain, Infrastructure/IDE, In-app Service, and Open-World Interoperability, achieving impressive progress so far by deploying a comprehensive batch of toolsets on its mainnet, including Rangers Connector’s cross-chain tools, Rangers Scan, Miner Console, Rangers Claim, the oracle function, and the Node Management Platform.
It is to Rangers Protocol’s belief that with the Web3 Engine gradually being built up and coming into place, Web3 developers will be able to enjoy the most smooth and efficient experience of dApp development, fully utilize their talent, and realize their aspirations in the new world of Web3.
