Very pleased to announce that the Developer Onboarding team has now launched a totally new first-time user experience for learning the fundamentals of game development on Roblox Studio!
The DevHub’s old ‘Quick Start’ page was great at showing you the ropes and getting you to your first basic game quickly, however, it stopped short of providing a linear progression beyond that. We noticed that developers who struggle with self-directed learning or feel overwhelmed by the wide range and varying complexity of content were likely to give up on learning how to develop on Roblox
With this project, we wanted to present a designed progression with consistent content that gives you an understanding of how to actually get to the point where you can make a great game from the beginning of your journey! The new onboarding experience is intended as a ‘one-stop shop’ for new developers to learn the basics across the major disciplines.
In total, we’re launching with 26 courses across 11 different categories of Roblox development, with plans in place to fill out a further 30+ courses in the months ahead! We’re particularly keen to focus on the coding side of the progression going forward and to develop more advanced materials to deliver on the target to provide everything a new developer would need to create a great game.

Thank you and happy learning!
