2년 전




What Will I Learn?

You will learn what the N() macro is and does in the context of EOSIO smart contract development.


A C++ compiler
Access to the EOSIO github repo linked in this post

Required Knowledge

Some knowledge of basic programming
Some understanding of C++ (see previous videos in the course for this)
A fair understanding of development and Imperative or Object Oriented Programming

Resources for EOSIO and this Project:

EOSIO Block.One Developer Documentation: https://developers.eos.io/
EOSIO Community Documentation: https://www.eosdocs.io/

Outline and Overview

In this video we deep dive on the behavior of the N() macro used extensively in EOSIO smart contract development. This macro is used to generate a compile time uint64_t from a base32 encoded string interpretation of it's input, but what does that really mean for you as a developer?

Hi @five34a4b,

Thank you for your contribution.

Since this is your first video tutorial, here are some points to help you improve:

  • For video tutorials, your tutorial needs to be unique. Otherwise, if tutorials can be found easily on the net, the video tutorial does not add value to the specific topic.

  • You need to work on an outline of your tutorial so that your learners can follow your flow of thoughts.

  • Presently, you jump around from one thing to another as you think of them and this leads to confusion to learners.

  • You need to lay out the foundation concepts for them so that when you teach new concepts, they know where the basic foundations are.

  • You need to work on the flow of your teaching otherwise there is confusion in the procedural steps of learning.

  • Write out everything in step by step format for clear tutorial. After all, you do want your learners to learn each step clearly.

Looking forward to your next contribution.
