Get Published on Roblox Developer Medium!

#1

Hey Developers,

We have been so impressed and overwhelmed by the interest that our community has shown in submitting articles for publishing on the Roblox Developer Medium https://medium.com/@RobloxDevRel. The last module, Why Roblox?, was an awesome compilation of the stories that drive our developers to create on Roblox and push the limits of what’s possible on the platform. These stories have, in turn, inspired our next module: Technologies on Roblox.

The Developer Relations team invites developers to apply to write articles on how they’ve used Roblox technology - features both old and new - to take their game or group to new heights. Here are a few examples of Roblox features that you could write about:

  • Future is Bright
  • Rthro
  • Game Update Notifications
  • Social media links
  • ViewportFrame
  • Avatar Context Menu
  • MessagingService
  • Game Localization
  • Any others you can think of!

Medium is a great way to gain exposure to communities outside of the Developer Community: the Medium publication is available to anyone who accesses a link to the article, goes looking for Roblox-related content, or discovers it organically! Once we publish our developers’ work on the website, the Developer Relations Team promotes these articles on the official Developer Relations Twitter and in the monthly recaps posted on the Developer Forum. These articles might also be reviewed and considered for PR opportunities.

If you have a topic in mind and are interested in getting published, please submit your ideas here: https://survey.roblox.com/s3/4605916-Roblox-Developer-Medium-Content-Submission

Best,

The Developer Relations Team

Will the posts that are written for Medium also be posted like the “Meet ___” articles are on the DevForums? Or will they be exclusively on Medium?

This is a great opportunity for aspiring journalists and for developers to get their name in the spotlight.

I know personally that getting an opportunity to share your thoughts to a wider audience is really beneficial in getting your ideas across and to develop your writing skills. I’ve done some journalism work before and I’m excited to try my hand with this.

I’ll be applying my topics in hopes to reach developers and the community alike. Good luck to all those who apply!

I would say no. But, I would assume that it would greatly help your chances when you apply for a promotion to a full member!

I’ve definitely considered it in the past and I’m certainly considering it again. I’d really love to share some of my experiences on the platform or write articles about various topics relevant to developers. I may not have the greatest know-how but sometimes you don’t need the best to speak up. :smile:

I can say that writing an article for the previous topic was a great experience, and I enjoyed writing it! I’ll definitely be applying for this one if I can think of a new topic.
