One week from today marks the end of the Game Developers Conference (GDC) and the beginning of the ROBLOX Developers Conference West (RDC West). ROBLOX staff and creators from our community will be participating in both of these events, and, for those of you who can’t be there, we’re planning to bring you coverage here on the ROBLOX blog.

Of particular note to the ROBLOX community is our RDC West livestream, which starts next Saturday at roughly 10 a.m. Pacific Time (12 p.m. CT / 1 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. GMT). The livestream will feature big announcements about the ROBLOX engine, Studio, and more, plus some other assorted fun. We expect that the stream will run for approximately two hours. You’ll be able to watch it in an embedded player at blog.roblox.com or, if you want to participate in the chat and get hyped up with other viewers, at twitch.tv/roblox. We hope to see a lot of you there!

Here’s some additional background information about next week’s events.

Game Developers Conference

Game Developers Conference is “the world’s largest and longest-running professionals-only game industry event.” The event features panels, educational sessions, and an expo showcasing the latest and greatest in gaming technology. ROBLOX will be debuting our brand new booth and featuring game developers from our community in it. If you’re attending and would like to learn more about our platform, the art of ROBLOX game development, or our open positions, stop by our booth in the Expo Hall on March 4th, 5th, or 6th!

ROBLOX Developers Conference

ROBLOX Developers Conference is an exclusive, invite-only, weekend-long event for ROBLOX game developers. RDC West, the first of the three RDC events, kicks off on March 6th – just as soon as the industry-wide Game Developers Conference ends. We’ll start with a party and then dive into the business of building games. Attendees will get a preview of our latest technology, learn from some of the top developers in the world, and give feedback directly to the ROBLOX team. It’s your opportunity to get on the fast track toward making a successful (or more successful) game.

We’re really excited about all the events happening in the next week. We hope that by broadcasting some of the action, you can experience some of it with us.
