The pages in this section of the documentation are aimed at the newcomer to the Horizen Sidechain SDK. They’re designed to help you get started quickly, and show how easy it is to work with the sidechain SDK as a developer who wants to customize it and get it working according to their own requirements.
These tutorials take you step-by-step through some key aspects of this work. They’re not intended to explain the topics in depth, or provide reference material, but they will leave you with a good idea of what is possible to achieve in just a few steps, and how to go about it.
Once you’re familiar with the basics presented in these tutorials, you’ll find the more in-depth coverage of the same topics in the How-to section.
