Developing on Celo for Dummies

Hello. I am a junior C/C++ dev looking to build a simple project on Celo. My project would only consist of recording certain transactions on a ledger; an application would be built on top of this by someone else to display transactions and data.

I was wondering if there are any github repos that someone can point me to that use Celo just to record transactions.

Thanks in advance! None of this is really my area so a bit overwhelmed by information online.
