Beyond The Blox is a podcast all about the Roblox platform and game development. Whether you’re just starting out or have been developing for a while, this is the podcast for you.
Each episode focuses on a different aspect of Roblox game development to explore best practice, tips and tricks from the development community.
Some episodes will be the host, BanTech, talking by himself about a topic, but the majority of episodes will feature developers from the community to discuss topics based around their experience on the platform. The goal is to shed light on different aspects of game development, and help both new and established developers to learn and grow.

Apologies for some of the audio on this episode.
I’ve had a cold for a week now (I know, in the middle of summer!) and so my nose was a bit blocked, particularly towards the end. Also the guest’s microphone had a bit of noise that proved difficult to remove - unfortunately I don’t have much control over that.

On this episode, @spotco joins BanTech to chat about the game development industry, working at Roblox, and how to make a career out of programming video games. @spotco is a former Roblox employee, creator of RoBeats (29M+ visits) and currently working at a well-known AAA game studio.
