There are multiple options to get started with the Código Platform. The faster way is through Código Studio.

Código Studio

Código Studio is built on the foundation of Visual Studio Code, a popular desktop code editor many developers use. As a result, if you have experience using VSCode, you'll find that the web-based environment of Código Studio will feel familiar and intuitive. Código Studio comes with all the dependencies and configurations required to build dApps at the speed of light.
