Holochain Core Concepts¶
Welcome to Holochain Core Concepts! Here we’ll introduce you to the basics of Holochain, a framework and network protocol for building secure distributed applications. Holochain is different from what you may be used to, but we’ll go at a comfortable pace, building on things you already know.
Who is this introduction for?¶
We’ve written this introduction for programmers, CTOs, and other technically oriented people. It’s a bit like a choose-your-own-adventure story.
If you’re in a hurry, and want to find out if Holochain is a good fit for your project, you can just read the articles—or if you’re in a real hurry, read the intro paragraph at the top and the key takeaways at the bottom.
If you’re a programmer and want to see the concepts come to life, follow the tutorials. Each tutorial is quick—you’ll be creating a running app in anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours. Code samples are written in Rust.
If you want to dig deep, each article has links to further reading from the guidebook, API documentation, or web.
