Create tutorials for Seahorse Lang

Create tutorials for Seahorse Lang

🎯 Mission Objectives

Seahorse lets you write Solana programs in Python. It is a community-led project built on Anchor. Developers gain Python's ease-of-use, while still having the same safety guarantees of every Rust program on the Solana chain. Low-level memory problems are handled by default, letting you worry about the important stuff.

Solana Foundation is looking for 3 devs to write Seahorse program examples and learning guides. Specifically, recreating the following, but for Seahorse Lang:

  1. Cash-settled European options protocol (reference)
  2. Escrow program (reference)
  3. Voting example (reference

Three people shall be selected to write a guide for each program. And shall be paid $500 for the deliverable.

🛠️ Scope of Work

  • Go through and understand existing Anchor reference guides,
  • Create similar program but in Python for Seahorse,
  • Create a tutorial / learning guide which people can follow to learn more about Seahorse.
