We usually start learning other languages, like C#, C++, Python, Javascript, etc... And since all of the programming languages are somehow linked up, when you learn a language, the others become very easy and similiar. mixgingengerina10 208 — 5mo

If you want to learn quickly- consider these: Youtube Tutorials on just scripting. It's hard to take in for a youtube tutorial to do a specific thing, but there are youtube tutorials on a topic so that you learn about that (if statements, functions, for loops, CFrame, etc.) - You could look at scripts in free models and just edit them slightly and while you do that you learn a bit.

Another thing- just script, if there's an error **post it here.** and if you get a solution, you can learn from that in your future scripts. - There's this game on ROBLOX called **Lua Learning**. It has user made guides and tutorials, and interactive scripting lessons. - The best youtuber for tutorials I think are **TheDevKing** and **GnomeCode** ScriptsALot 80 — 5mo

AlvinBlox is very good at explaining.

PeasFactory videos are short and get to the point quickly

TheDevKing is also very good at explaining

TheDevKing and PeasFactory have a beginner to advanced scripting series. The DevKing and AlvinBlox have tutorials on small projects and games. AlvinBlox has a beginner scripting series and livestreams sometimes.

You forgot the roblox developer hub and experimenting with free models youtubers is not the only key to success. JesseSong 3304 — 5mo

try starting off with script.parent variables and wait, for example:

part = script.parent
part.transparency = 1
wait (1)
part.transparency = 0


note: you need to have the script inside the part for this to work if not you would use game.workspace.part they do the same thing what this dose: it's telling the computer that when part gets typed it knows it means script.parent so then whenever there's a part the computer is filling in script.parent then script.parent changes properties at a certain time in the game so if you inserted it into a function you will learn later it can do it at a specific time so it should make the part invisible then the wait is telling the computer to wait however many seconds are in the brackets in this case 1 then it does the rest it then makes the part visible again you can touch it whenever the process is going to turn that off do part or script.parent.cancollide = false then when it's done so at the end of the code type part.CanCollide = true that makes the block basically disappear but it was not destroyed so you can type the last part after the end to make it normal

I personally started doing beggining stuff with Alvinblox, and doing more Advanced scripting with TheDevKing. Alvinblox personally for me goes into more detail than TheDevKing. Once again, Alvinblox is better for begginers. There's Peas Factory too, but I think it is outdated, as he's not uploaded a video since summer 2015.

I can link you some good resources for help.
