During this workshop we will teach how to create Roblox games integrated with a Java / Quarkus backend to manage teams, quiz, coding challenges and also cool integrations with IoT sensors, musical instruments using Fast Fourier Transform with Java / Processing.org and also camera with AI to detect objects in the real players.
We will explain the basics of Roblox development and show detailed architecture and challenges we have integrating Roblox with AWS Cloud. All the code is available to anyone that want to create your own game, demos for booths and amazing integration between virtual world and real world and vice-versa.
All the participant will create:
  • A Roblox game with quiz and coding challenge
  • A Quarkus backend to manage quiz / teams / other data in a noSQL database
  • Deployment backend in AWS Lambda with AWS DynamoDB and Amazon Codewhisperer
  • Optional: Test FFT integration with processing.org
  • Optional: use camera with AI to recognize objects in real players (if the player is wearing a hat, then the avatar inside the game wear a hat)
