There are several workflows to consider when building on Solana. Whether you want to create your own smart contracts (programs) from scratch using Rust, C, or C++ or use third-party application programming interfaces (APIs) to interact with existing dapps, the Solana development process is intuitive and user-friendly.

Smart contract development is often associated with Ethereum, the leading smart contract blockchain. Any developer familiar with JavaScript will have a head start when learning how to build smart contracts on Ethereum with the Solidity programming language. However, several Ethereum competitors currently experience increased adoption thanks to their low transaction fees and high throughput. One such competitor is Solana, one of the fastest blockchains around. Furthermore, Rust is the programming language used for building decentralized applications (dapps) on Solana. As a developer, you may be familiar with the Solana ecosystem. However, many developers are asking, “what is the Rust programming language?” and “what are the benefits of Rust?”.
