🚀 Cairo 1.0 official docs are live
After a huge wait, the Starkware team finally announced the release of the first version of the official documentation for Cairo 1.0.
Cairo 1.0 was first announced in September last year, coming with a lot of interesting features that made developers excited. Though an amazing language, a huge bottleneck was faced as it was a lot different from the existing Cairo 0.x versions, and yet had no existing documentation for learning the new language.
Though the recently released Cairo docs are still incomplete, they go a long way in making development on Starknet easier. Check out the docs below:
