While studying blockchain development. I just learned about how to connect to the Ethereum blockchain. The two ways that I discovered, so far is downloading the complete node which can take a long time and take up a lot of space or use an application to assist with it.
I am going to be discussing the application that you can use to connect quickly and not worry about taking days or hours to sync to the blockchain. Infura is an infrastructure that allows developers to implement blockchain applications from testing to deployment with simple access to Ethereum.
The client that Infura uses is called Geth. Geth is a golang implementation of the Ethereum blockchain. It is pretty cool that this application allows you to connect with simple ease. More to come soon.
