Lesson 1.1: Setting Up Our Development Environment

Welcome to Lesson 1.1! In this lesson, you'll learn how to set up the development environment that we'll use in the 4th. Cohort of the Plutus Pioneers Program.

You can review the installation instructions presented in this video lecture in the Working Environment Set Up section of this playbook.

After completing this lesson, you'll be able to:

  • Identify the Discord channels where you can ask for assistance during the PPP.

  • Create a Demeter account and set up a cloud-based development environment.

  • Fork the PPP repository in your GitHub account.

  • Clone a GitHub repository fork in your computer.

  • Set up a local development environment using Docker Desktop and Visual Studio Code.

  • Explain the differences between a cloud-based development environment and a local setup.

Collaborate with the Pioneers Community

Remember that you can interact with the participants of the PPP through the IOG's technical community on Discord by joining the channels under the Plutus Pioneers category.

If during the program you have questions about Plutus, we invite you to share them at Cardano Stack Exchange (CSE) by adding the plutus-pioneer-program tag to your question. The IOG's Education Team members will monitor these questions to support your learning journey. Whenever you share a question at CSE, you're helping to build up the Cardano and Plutus development knowledge base.
