Solidity programming is an object-oriented language for developing smart contracts. It’s most commonly used for creating smart contracts on the ethereal network, including, but not limited to, the Parity and Mist platforms. The language is open source and it is free for anyone to use it in their own applications, as long as they abide by the license agreement (see links at the bottom).

This language was initially developed by Vitalik Buterin and Ryan Shea. They released a pre-written library of contract types called “EIPs”Ethereum Improvement Proposals.” This language is based around the idea of an “EVM,” or “EVM Contract.” This means that every contract written with this language will have an EVM inside of it.

A contract can be composed of several parts, or modules. These are described as the “contractor,” the “contractee,” and “modifier.” The contract can either have a single contractor, or multiple contracts. If there are multiple contractors, they are usually called “participants.” If there are multiple contractees, they are usually called “participants.”

A contract works just like any other type of program. It has “actions.” These include both functions and expressions. In addition, it may have a “return statements.” An action can be one of multiple types. An expression is just another word for a function or expression.

The contract also has a “state.” This is a fancy way of saying the actual state of the contract when it is being used. The contract will be created with the state it currently has as a base, but it can be changed at any time by any of the contract’s “participants.”

A contract’s participants may not always be the same entities. There are two types of participants in a contract, referred to as “codecs.” Each type has its own set of benefits and responsibilities. A contract’s codec will be described in the contract itself, or it can be described by a “contract description language” or CDS. A contract’s codec will be its specification as well.

The terms “codec”contract description language” are not the same, though they do mean the same thing. They are used interchangeably. When describing a contract’s model, a contract should refer to its specification. In the specification, the term codec is typically used to mean an abstract specification or algorithm of what a contract’s codec is.

Contracts are a way of describing and enforcing a specific contract between parties. Because the contract exists outside of the code itself, it is commonly referred to as “code without specification.”

Because the contract’s specifications are considered to be “just” code, contracts can be re-used. For example, if a developer has already written a contract, he can re-use that contract’s specifications in a new contract that is written based on the specifications. This is referred to as “re-usability.”

The contract can also refer to code that was already written for a contract that was written before the contract was written. As an example, a “contract written for a contract type called a “ticketing system” could be referred to as a “ticketing specification.” When this kind of contract was written, it was called a “ticketing spec.”

A contract can also be referred to as a “contract because it describes a contract. In general, the contract will tell the contractors, and the parties involved, what the terms and conditions of a contract are, the contract’s features, and the contract’s consequences if it is broken. However, a contract does not have to actually tell the parties what the contract’s effect would be if it were broken.

Contracts are just programs written by programmers for programmers. Some contracts, though, involve outside third parties such as lawyers, financial institutions, or other organizations, that need to be written. These contracts are known as “external contracts.”

The contract can have no effects on the code written by the programmer, or it can have all of its effects on the code in the contract’s specification. If it only describes the contract, and nothing else, it can refer to “code written for the contract’s specification.”
