Just wanted to briefly go over how to get started with the Ethereum Test Network so you can begin to publish Solidity Contracts.
Go here, and download the Wallet: https://www.ethereum.org/
From there enable Rinkeby Test Network. If you already have the Wallet installed, then simply go on “Develop” up on top -> “Network” -> “Rinkeby – Test Network.”
After this, go to Wallets, and create a wallet for yourself.
You will need test coins, do not send real ethereum coins to these addresses.
Go here: https://faucet.rinkeby.io/
And request some test coins to your address. I will give instructions on how to publish solidity contracts in a future blog. Stay tuned.
