I discovered blockchain one year ago and I am enthusiastic about this new technology. Cardano is one of my top favorite projects, I believe it has an amazing potential that will keep unfolding in the next years ahead.
I am a late bloomer in technology (in my late forties), but millenial in heart and I started to learn coding only a few months ago. I am currently working in the administrative field in an international organization, I used to work as a web designer back in the Internet bubble days, but today I would like to reorient my career to the blockchain field.
I know most of you guys are developers with much experience and understanding, but what would you advise to me to get started specifically with Cardano?
As I understand from other posts, a good advice is to learn Solidity and how to write smart contracts, and yes I started to take this path. How Cardano smart contracts differ from those written on the top of the Ethereum blockchain?
Furthermore, what would you advise me to learn more about Cardano specifics, such as Daedalus, Ouroboros? Should I learn coding in Haskell?
Your inputs would be greatly appreciated
All the best,
