The Roblox Education website starts out explaining some best practices when it comes to the Studio User Interface, including how to properly create and store the many scripts you will need for your next game. In this tutorial, you will learn about the ServerScriptService area, where you can store all the scripts that relate to your entire game environment. Once you have the basics down, this lesson walks the programmer through how to create Variables and use them in your scripts to make things happen! They use a nice, easy-to-follow step process that is best for beginning coders.
What better way to learn coding than to have your own online personal instructor? Create & Learn offers a free introductory class to Roblox coding, in addition to a 12-session live online course on Coding with Roblox Studio. They start out with learning to place parts in your game, move to writing scripts that change colors, make things poisonous, or even have them disappear, and move toward more advanced coding skills like earning coins and using droppers. There's even an Advanced Roblox Class, complete with a new fun challenge each week.
Roblox’s Create Website has a challenging but fun series of games to learn to build called Build It, Play It Challenges. On this website you will find many new ideas to explore, from magical effects, to story modes, to animations! Each challenge is a series of lessons that instruct the user how to create each step of the activity in written, and often, video formats. Some of the challenges offer digital rewards on completion.
Many early Roblox developers have turned to sharing their skills with beginning coders like you on YouTube. There are a large range of videos and channels that support learners in their desire to advance their scripting skills. AlvinBlox is one example of good content that moves at a decent pace for beginners. One advantage to watching tutorial videos is being able to pause, back up, and repeat the instructions as much as needed by the viewer to understand the scripts. Some of the YouTubers are willing to reply to comments and questions on their content, as well!
Have a knack for reading? Perhaps you haven’t picked up your Kindle Reader in a couple months? There are several authors who have published highly-reviewed books and e-books that teach from basic coding in Roblox Studio to advanced scripts and activities. Some of the authors currently work at Roblox, so you know they will have the most up-to-date printed tools for learning scripting!
If you like to learn with a mix of reading and video/gif support, then the Roblox Developers Learning Website might just be for you. They have a fair mix of both beginner and intermediate tutorials that teach different design areas of the types of games you likely play in Roblox. You can learn how to script a score bar, save game data, play background music, and even build a working ferris wheel! Each tutorial focuses on one area of content so you can learn one step at a time, as you have time in your schedule.
If learning alongside other coders feels intimidating, you could always hire a tutor to work with you individually. Either locally in your hometown or online through websites, students can connect directly with adults who love to code and want to help young coders get started. Tutors are found for every level of Roblox Studio Coding on Create & Learn, and most online tutors get matched to you depending on your experience and learning style.
