Back in summer, 2014, we asked the ROBLOX community to cast their vote to get ROBLOX on a panel at SXSW Interactive, one of the biggest tech and gaming conferences on the planet. You guys totally came through and ROBLOX was one of the companies chosen to speak at the event. Thanks!

March 2015 has come quickly, and we’re excited to share details about our first ever appearance at SXSW Interactive.

The panel, titled “You Make the Game: UGC and the Next Wave of Play”, is all about how awesome gamers and developers like yourselves are changing the landscape of gaming.

We’ve teamed up with Microsoft and Project Spark to broaden the scope of the panel. Saxs Persson, Studio Manager for Team Dakota, will be joining David Baszucki and ROBLOX developer SmoothBlockModel to talk about how user-generated games are becoming more prominent on desktop, mobile, and consoles.

We’ll be filming the panel, so you will get to watch and listen to it after the fact, but if you happen to be in the Austin, Texas area the panel is FREE and open to the public. The panel takes place Sunday, March 15 at 11 a.m. in the Hyatt Regency Austin. You can find all the details about it on the official SXSW event page.

We hope to see some of you there!
