I was working in a startup many years ago where I was surrounded by software engineers. Though I had taken some casual programming classes in high school I wasn’t really inspired to go into programming until I saw how empowering the career track was with my colleagues. Because I left home when I was 17 I was working my way through college, and much of my actual coding was self taught or learned on the job

I was actually recruited into Roblox and while I wasn’t familiar at the time with Roblox I was super excited to find out more about it during my interview process. One of the things that intrigued me the most was the young, emerging developer audience that was core to the success of Roblox. I loved the idea of such an engaging platform and having the opportunity to build and lead a team to create programs for this audience. I saw this as a great way to tie my passions around building developer communities, education, and diversity programs.

I have always been so impressed by the caliber of talent we have on the Roblox platform. Our creators are not only making successful games which rake in real money - many of them are also going to school at the same time. The money they earn in many cases is equivalent to a solid living wage.

We’ve got a wealth of resources to get your son started. First many of our developers start by downloading Roblox Studio - our free development tool for PC and Mac. There are community-endorsed models, which have code that many devs have used as a starting point to break down how things work. For more formal learning, however, we also have tutorials available on our developer hub: https://developer.roblox.com/learn-roblox/all-tutorials, as well as a fun creator challenge which Jurassic World cosponsored with us: https://developer.roblox.com/resources/creator-challenge/Main-Page. Finally, we have 84+ educational partners across 22 countries who have after school or summer programs to help students learn how to develop on Roblox: https://developer.roblox.com/resources/educators/educatorList .
