New season of DevDiscuss! S3E1, Developing in Minecraft & Roblox

@jess and I are back with a new season of the DevDiscuss podcast.

Check out the season three premiere right here on DEV:

play pause DevDiscuss

Quick refresher: DevDiscuss is the podcast where Jess and I discuss the burning topics that affect all our lives as developers. We're lucky to be joined by special guests each week to share their perspectives and get into the fascinating weeds on the topics of the week.


S3E1 is all about coding in the popular video game platforms, Minecraft and Roblox.

We were joined by Genevieve Johnson, Senior Instructional Designer at Roblox and Gabriel Simmer, Community and Partner Engineer at CircleCI (who at 16, built NodeMC — a tool that can be used to create dashboards and spin up servers in Minecraft).

As a member of the DEV community, I think you'll like this dive into the open and extensible world of Minecraft and Roblox and their respective development platforms. ✨

Just listened to this episode with my two boys, ages 8 and 10. They loved it! They’re already big Minecraft fans, and we plan to start exploring Roblox next. As a parent and former teacher, I really appreciated the discussion about keeping the environment safe, especially for younger players.
