Starter kits

Should be extremely well documented, explain all details about the repo and code. Should be able to “fork and go” without having to refer to the “docs.” They should allow the user to not worry about compiling but be able to just start experimenting with the code to see what it can do.

Technical Blogs

Should explain what Mina Protocol is. How to get started in the Eco system. What are the advantages of working in the Mini Protocol platform and ecosystem. A great “how to” with references and great breakdown explanations.
