Welcome to our documentation for developers in the Skynet ecosystem. These build on our Skynet Guide and bring these concepts to life in code and with additional technical details needed by developers. If you need a quick primer on Skynet, reading through the Getting Started section will help you understand Skynet before trying to build with it.
Skynet offers several advantages to developers:
Developers don't have to manage or pay for any infrastructure.
Once deployed, applications are independent and need no further caretaking by the developer.
Application data is user-controlled, available across applications, so your application can utilize pre-existing user information instead of starting from scratch.
You'll be able to monetize your application without the use of advertising (soon).
These docs have several key sections:
