I'm a C++ dev and spent last months trying out solidity stuff but defintely want to try EOS now.

How do I get started to understand all the terms and various parts of EOS ?

I've seen gas works differently here and you need to have big quantities of gas to publish your contract. Someone can explain me how does it works ?

What software do I need except from my dev framework ?

Thanks everyone

    There are too many questions here. Please edit and focus on the technical side. What is it specifically that you are experiencing difficulty with? – Ami Heines May 31 '18 at 10:30
  • I don't get how to deploy basically. I can write my C++ code and then what ? I guess to publish it I would need a blockchain running (private for testing purposes) and a node connected to it. Once you got everything up and running I guess you will deploy on the blockchain and then use the smart contract published with your front end I guess. This is how it works ? If yes what I need to look for to start setting up everything ? – Xaler Jun 1 '18 at 7:22

Setting up a development environment is simple, just follow the first page of the wiki, here: https://github.com/EOSIO/eos/wiki/Local-Environment


If you're looking to get started on EOS you can do so by running your own single node testnet on your local machine. I recommend using Docker for this.

There's a community documentation site called EOSDocs.io which I suggest you go to which will run you through starting your own blockchain, keys, accounts, compiling and deploying contracts.

There's also the EOS Developer telegram channel too.
