Quickstart Guide

Intended audience are the developers who are new to ICON, but are familiar with programming languages and have basic SW development experience. The purpose of this guide is to help you setup the SCORE development environment, and deploy your first SCORE quickly without touching any in-depth knowledge.

This tutorial is in three parts. In part 1, you will get familiar with the development tools, and the local testing environment. You will write a simple SCORE, and execute it on your PC. In part 2, you will learn how to deploy the SCORE onto the testnet, and write a python client code to interact with it. Part 3 will explain how to set up your own private devnet on AWS.
