Building the Haskell cardano-node on Linux
tl;dr; Jump straight to the build instructions The Details Looking forward to the Haskell mainnet, the next step in the Cardano project, I’ve begun exploring the cardano-node Haskell implementation. I find that exploring source code is much easier if you actually watch the program run for a while. So, the first thing a developer has […]
256 Bit Integer commented uint256.cpp from Bitcoin Core source code
If you’ve developed systems in C or C++ before then you’re probably familiar with the stdint.h (cstdint for C++) typedefs. Since there’a lot of variation between platforms, stdint.h standardizes integer type names in an intuitive way. A uint8_t is an 8-bit unsigned integer and a uint64_t is a 64 bit unsigned integer. What you won’t […]
Getting started with AVAX Toolbox
tl;dr; Clone both avalancheJ and avax-toolbox into the same parent directory. cd to the avax-toolbox dir and run gradle build You can find a list of AVAX Toolbox programs and their gradle tasks below. AVAX Toolbox AVAX Toolbox is a set of programs I initially wrote to test features from the avalancheJ library. I’ve been […]
optional.h a pre-C++17 optional type in the Bitcoin source code
optional.h is a stub that’ll likely get removed from Bitcoin Core at a future date when C++ 17 gets formally adopted for the entire project. By reading the Bitcoin Core sources you can see that lots of sections could use C++ 17 idioms. Let’s keep in mind though that Bitcoin Core is high security software […]

C++ programming language - used to implement Bitcoin Core, as well as most first generation cryptocurrencies, high performance Bitcoin miners and other critical software.
Go Programming Language
The Go Programming Language, or Golang, was developed at Google and first released to the public in 2007. Many respected names were behind the language, such as Ken Thompson and Rob Pike, both of whom were involved in the early development of C and UNIX at Bell Labs.
Haskell is a purely functional programming language which generates very secure and elegant programs. Haskell is used in the implementation of the Cardano ADA cryptocurrency.
Java is an object-oriented programming language introduced in the mid 1990's. Borrowing its syntax from C and C++, its main objective was to simplify memory management and make C++ programming faster, more fun and secure. Today it's one of the most widely adopted programming languages.

Rust is a general purpose programming language developed by Mozilla. Rust aims to be a replacement for systems languages such as C and C++. It's generally very fast and helps avoid memory management issues which have long plagued similar low level languages.
Solidity is a smart contract programming language. It gained widespread adoption via the Ethereum Virtual Machine.
