This year was my first RDC ever. I’ve been a long term developer but finally met the community.
2-3 sentence closing thoughts:
I went to meet others passionate about the platform. Several of the top Roblox staff was there and took the initiative to meet the developers and listen to feedback. The conference was a great opportunity to get a bit more connected with the company and the community.
Extended closing thoughts:
I went with the intention to make some friends with common interests, and that wasn’t hard since everyone is passionate about Roblox. I didn’t expect much other than that. But I ended up learning way more than I expected. Roblox really cares about the community of developers.
They treated us like royalty. Amazing meals and food throughout the entire event. Like at any moment if I felt the slightest bit hungry there was a snack stand or meal being served. Not only that but they give away cool things too. The hotel they host the event at can’t be any better. It’s right next to the airport, right next to HQ, and all the social spaces are perfect for the event.
During the social it seemed like everyone had a chance to meet the big staff at Roblox including the CEO and the engineers who make it happen. Which is super cool if your interested in interning or getting more involved with the company. They listen to whatever feedback you have to offer and take it seriously.
The breakout sessions are also great ways to learn. Not only do you get to hear the latest and greatest but you can also provide questions and concerns. I feel like my development is going to be way greater after attending.
