What is a “Viewing Party”? Why is there not a full RDC in EU?
In years past, RDC EU has followed the US event by a few weeks, repeating the same content. This year, with efforts targeting internationalization, Roblox is focusing on the digital experience of RDC in a bigger, more global way. This year, RDC SF content, including sessions, keynotes, and behind the scenes footage, will be pushed live to our Global Viewing Site (link coming soon), creating a digital co-viewing experience for Roblox developers around the world. Our goal is to share the experience of RDC with as many developers as possible.
One thing we didn’t want to miss out on is the chance for developers to connect in real life - networking, making friends, and developing new connections is one of the core pillars of RDC. The RDC London Viewing Party is a Roblox-hosted gathering for those developers who are able to make it to London, to meet up and learn about what’s new for the company and the community. We’ll be providing eExclusive RDC London sSwag, food and games, as well as bonus EU specific content presented by Roblox staff are only part of the agenda in addition to a live-streamed, real-time presentation of the US keynote presentations.
We also encourage local developers to self-organize and extend their RDC experience beyond this single day Viewing Party. From wherever you are, plan your own Game Jam, organize local meetups, and create your own experiences - it is what you do best. Our mission at Roblox is to create the tools and frameworks for developers to build, learn, and grow. Share your experiences with us at #RDC2019
