Hack Africa: Stellar Workshop 2 – How to get started developing on Stellar
Join us at the second Stellar workshop, teaching hackers how to start developing on Stellar!
In this workshop, developers of all skill levels will learn how to get started building applications on Stellar. SDF’s Ecosystem Engineer, Tyler van der Hoeven, will introduce you to Stellar SDKs and walk you through the documents of the Horizon API instance. At the end, he’ll demonstrate building a basic Stellar app to build and sign transactions utilizing delegated signing methods. Join this workshop and discover all the tips and tricks that make it easy to build award-winning projects on Stellar!
Stellar is an open-source network for currencies and payments. Stellar makes it possible to create, send and trade digital representations of all forms of money—dollars, pesos, bitcoin, pretty much anything. It’s designed so all the world’s financial systems can work together on a single network.
For end-users, Stellar is a fast, efficient network for trading, saving, and spending digital money. For builders, it’s open financial infrastructure. Anyone can access it; there’s no permission or application needed. The software runs across a decentralized, open network and handles millions of transactions each day. Like Bitcoin and Ethereum, Stellar relies on blockchain to keep the network in sync, but the end-user experience is more like cash—Stellar is much faster, cheaper, and more energy-efficient than typical blockchain-based systems.

Stellar Development Foundation
The ongoing development of Stellar is guided and supported by the Stellar Development Foundation, a non-profit company based in the U.S. The Foundation helps maintain Stellar’s codebase, supports the engineering and business communities around Stellar, and is a speaking partner to regulators and institutions.
