A conceptual overview of zkSNARKs and their application to Zcash. This will be followed by a dive into how developers can take advantage of the features and tools available for working with Zcash. For developers interested in implementing their own zkSNARK circuits, we will also cover some of the work the Zcash Foundation is doing to advance the state of the art and make key pieces like parameter generation more accessible. Custom zkSNARK circuits are still very difficult to construct, but the Foundation has been running a Zapps (Zero-knowledge applications) working group to advance the effort.
