    @jflowers1974_twitter , are you trying our demo?

    I am
    Love it, just what the community needs - an on ramp to get up to speed.

    Yeah, I found it a little painful to climb up onto the highway myself, so I thought we should leave a record.
    Are you having any luck with it?

    So far so good, I'm thinking of a project to apply this to.
    Something that would make it real for myself.,,

    Cool. What does it do?
    Or, at least, what types of functions do you need?

    Honestly, I haven't thought of my 'project' - this takes me the longest amount of time. The thinking of the goals/story arc. So I'm still thinking about it. This usually eats up 90% of my time/brain power.

    The things I think about when I'm thinking of apps are: 1) Serverless
    You don't need a central server with a Dapp
    and 2) Trust
    You can structure so that humans don't need to be trusted.
    Of course, you can choose not to use those features, but those are pretty cool features that are hard to get elsewhere.

    For what it's worth @jflowers1974_twitter , I'm in the process of writing a few more posts that go through some of the really painful "gotcha" problems that I had when I started coding in Solidity
    Jeff Flowers
    @jflowers1974_twitter
    spot on. I say this only half joking - I don't trust myself. This is the real power of this tech and the tools that are emerging. We can get them to a point such that, you don't need to have trust. I've seen too many times my own ability at making a fine mess, so having a machine take over these responsibilities is just awesome.
    I can't wait to see more posts.

    Thanks for the encouragement!

    there's so many 'gotchas' at the moment - having these for others to see, gives folks the confidence to push forward.

    @budaitraveller
    That's pretty funny. I think there is a whole category of apps out there waiting to be built for people who don't trust themselves! :)

    I know that would make my wife happy ;-)

    @budaitraveller
    Yeah, our next posts are going to be solidity programming posts. @giblfiz is working on some more interesting examples that people can build on.

    cool beans.

    Hey, Jeff, let us know what you build, and if you get stuck.
    I might go offline for a bit. You can leave messages here and we'll get back to you.
