At the end of the day, Solidity is just a programming language. Having a strong foundation in programming concepts is important no matter what language you are using.
That being said… Solidity is a relatively simple language to learn, even for new programmers!
It has a number of features and tools that are specifically designed for writing smart contracts. If you have a basic knowledge of programming, and an understanding of smart contracts, you can get started quick.y.
If you are just interested in learning Solidity for a specific project or to gain a general understanding of smart contracts, it is possible to learn Solidity without any prior programming experience.
… but we don’t recommend it.
