Check out the Roblox Developer forum
The Roblox Developer forum is a great resource for Roblox players who want to communicate with, learn from, or just chat with other Roblox developers. The Roblox Developer forum has dedicated sections for updates, help and feedback, and platform-specific feedback. There are also sections to communicate and collaborate with other Roblox developers, plus a whole section of resources to take advantage of.
If you’re having trouble with your Roblox scripts, the forum has an active community ready to help out with your issue by offering feedback and advice.
Decompile free Roblox script models
If you’re looking to learn how to create a specific item in Roblox studio, reverse engineering another creation is a great way to go about it. Simply search for the item you want to learn how to create, and check the ‘script’ tab in the menu on the right-hand side of the screen to open up a window containing all of the scripting information for that item.
Read the Roblox wiki
Much like the Roblox Developer forum, the Roblox wiki is also a great resource for in-depth, step-by-step scripting tutorials, like this one.
