A Deep Dive on StarkNet with Henri Liuetad

Today’s guest is Henri from StarkWare. Henri is a dev advocate who is deeply plugged into the StarkNet ecosystem and also hosts the StarkNet team’s podcast. This episode is meant to be a great introduction into building on StarkNet for existing web3 devs. 
We went very deep into all things StarkNet and Cairo. 
We discussed things like the StarkNet account model & runtime environment, the evolution of Cairo & Cairo 1.0, and the future of applications that might use StarkNet for privacy preserving applications (rather than using the ZK rollup for scalability alone).
We also made sure to talk through the mental models that devs coming from the EVM need to understand in order to build on starknet, and why the team built their own separate language in the first place.
