Introducing the The Cadence Cup - a series of tasks and challenges over the course of three weeks that asks you to explore the capabilities of Cadence, Flow's safe and easy-to-learn resource-oriented smart contract programming language.
Since the release of Flow Playground two weeks ago, we've seen hundreds of developers diving into the tutorials and sharpening their Cadence skills. Now, it's your chance.
Starting today, you can complete challenges on Flow Playground. Each week, a new challenge will be posted on the Flow Discord for you to implement.
At the end of each week, judges from the Flow team and community will give each project a score and the highest scoring project will win prizes.
Being cooped-up in quarantine had the team thinking a lot about what it means to create with limited resources and share without physical connection. We want to invite you to get wild, introspective, and playful. Create a digital object you will share via a special NFT Minter on Flow.
NFT Minters allow you to create an NFT (a unique digital artifact, in Cadence we call them "Resources") that you define, own, and can share with others. You can see a simple example in the NFT tutorial.
Judges will score each project on readability, effectiveness, and creativity. Read the rules for more information. We'll be there to assist you along the way. If you have any questions during this challenge, please post them in the #developer channel.
Start Date for Week 1 Challenge: March 18, 2020
End Date for Week 1 Challenge: March 30, 2020 (11:59 PM PST - time subject to change)
