We know many of you have been eagerly awaiting more details for this year’s Roblox Developers Conference (RDC). And we’re very very happy to finally be able to share more information - including a few exciting changes from what we announced earlier this year.
Our team has been hard at work making the necessary preparations and finalizing the plans for an RDC that we hope you are excited to attend both online AND (just a few studs away from Roblox HQ) in San Francisco!
Last year, we hosted our first-ever, fully virtual RDC. Not only was it our first digital event, it also became one of our biggest, most global events to date! But even so, many of you shared that you wished we could have a chance to get together again (we feel the same), so we took a step back and looked at our options on how we could accommodate both virtual and in-person.
We decided that building an event where you can have a choice of how you attend would be the safest path forward. But with this shift to a hybrid-style event, we needed to make adjustments to our previously announced schedule. As we mentioned this month, this year’s RDC will no longer be happening virtually in July, it will now be a hybrid-event in October! In addition, the main event will now start on Thursday and end on Saturday - Note that if you’re unable to attend physically for any of the days you will have the option to attend virtually.
This is a huge change from how we have always celebrated RDC together. We hope you are still excited and ready to join us this October at the Fort Mason Center, a water-front venue in north San Francisco, for RDC 2021!
