A Newsletter for Ethereum devs, and not-so-devs.
Welcome to The Ethernaut Diaries.
This is a newsletter by an Eth dev, for Eth devs... And for non devs too! As long as you’re willing to dip your toes in the Ethereum cosmic pool a little bit.
We all know that there’s fantastic newsletters out there already, like Bankless, The Daily Gwei, and Week in Ethereum News, which all do a superb job in keeping us Eth-fit. However, my aim is to fill the gap of that kind of content, but aimed at the tech or semi-tech savvy.
Yes, the focus will be on the technical stuff, but it will be light, and fluffy, and nice, I promise ^^
We won’t go too deep into a topic, but it won’t be ELI5 either. Maybe ELI6, or ELI7? Let’s say ELI ^5.0.0 for now.
We’ll address topics and questions that you might be postponing because you never have the time to do the research, such as:
How do you spin up a Graph Protocol subgraph?
How exactly is COMP minted and distributed?
How does Compound governance work?
How do you interact with <x> protocol via Etherscan?
How can you navigate the Etherspace in your own mainnet fork and play whale?
And much more…
I’ll do my best to compress the content as much as possible, so that you can digest it even after you’ve just deployed 13 contracts on mainnet, 3 days after your deadline, realized there was a critical bug, and fixed it.
Who am I?
I’m Alejandro Santander, from Uruguay, author of the game Ethernaut, currently a dev at Aragon, ex OpenZeppelin. I’ve created things like Pocketh, and Aragon’s Buidler plugin, helped build things like Aragon Connect. You may also have heard of me from articles I wrote, like Deconstructing a Solidity Contract, or My First Aragon App: Voting supercharged with DAOstack’s Holographic Consensus.
So, sign up now so you don’t miss the first issue. Let’s navigate the Ether!
In the meantime, tell your friends.
