How did you guys learn how to code in Lua?

Hey, everyone please let me know if this is the right category if it’s not ill delete it and move it.
I believe it is correct me if I’m wrong.

Anyways how did you learn to code Lua? Like did you learn from a book, or from Youtube, or one of the many other references? I myself am learning Lua from a book specifically made for Roblox coding. Also, what would you recommend to a beginner? I would really like to hear your opinion.

Mostly by youtube and developer hub

I used to watch YouTube tutorials, but I’ve stopped for now. The Roblox Developer Hub is an amazing resource. It’s basically an entire wiki for developers, has a bunch of tutorials, an ever-expanding API reference (I use it every time I forget something or need the required arguments/returns of a function), and more.

I’ve also gotten some advice from Discord servers in the past, like how to handle multiple remotes efficiently, and such.

Still need to find out why :Destroy() is not destroying a specific object though.

I’m still learning but the way I learn is basically building random stuff and if I don’t know how to do something I look it up on the Developer Hub, DevForum, or other resources. I usually don’t watch tutorials because they usually just teach you how to do something and then I have to figure out what each line of code does.

Hello developer brother!
Currently, Roblox has integrated many ways of learning to program with the LUA language because it believes that we all have the imagination and the ability to develop games within Roblox.
Developer Hub is the best place to start learning the basics such as printed statements, local variables, Boolean values, custom functions, variable math, properties, etc.
However, if this seems very complex and you cannot understand, there are other means to learn about LUA, such as the CK Studio + plugin, it is an extremely useful tool for novice programmers, CK Studio + gives you totally free courses, with follow-up of code (That is, it informs you if your code is wrong), it also has different languages ​​to adjust to your verbal comfort.
If you want to become a true programmer you can reinforce your knowledge in the YouTube tutorials or here, in this developer forum where we have tutorials from how to store data, to advanced block shaping.
I hope my answer has been useful to you. Next I will leave you the links of the places that I have mentioned in this answer.

I started with PeasFactory, and then started reading the developer page. Found the forum and started seeing what other people were doing. Read tutorials and copied them. Eventually found an amazing discord server that tutors people in all types of Roblox development.

I learned to code Lua off a few of my friends, and also by myself starting off small with things like team changers and such. Basically just getting used to coding until i move onto the more complex stuff, I have been scripting for nearly a year and a half i think i am pretty decent at it.

Note this discussion was flagged so i’ll be closing the discussion soon thanks for the input though.

I learned, just by self teaching. I scrolled through free model scripts, and just figured out what they did, and de-bunked the code! That’s all I did.
