I am a graphic design student currently developing my own original font. I exclusively use adobe products for all of my work for school and professionally. I finished the rough of my typeface and thought it would be incredible to make my typeface completley active. Possible having my font featured on adobe fonts for use and purchase. How would I go about having my font developed so that other designers can use my original typeface?

The font creation tool provided by Adobe is the open source "Adobe Font Development Kit fot OpenType (AFDKO)".
However, this is a command line tool that uses Python, and requires knowledge of font development.

Therefore, normally, we use Glyphs for macOS and High-Logic Font Creator for Windows to create fonts, but these are charged.
You can use FontForge if it is free, but this also requires know-how in font development.

In current font development, incorporating that design and font format can be different.
This is because the OpenType format is very complicated and when it comes to various features, it's not just about characters.
It's not that hard to follow a simple ASCII format, but users may not be happy with it alone.
