Training in Lua

I'm always keeping my ears and eyes open for up and coming languages, and earlier this week the subject of lua came up. Lua is a procedural programming language, written as long ago as 1993, which has gained a degree of popularity of late. It's written in a subset of ANSI C and C++ to give it maximum portability, and it's implemented very much in the same way that Tcl is as a library which can be built into C applications.

As seems to be inevitable when a new language comes up, people tend to turn to me and say "do you offer training in ...". No, we don't have a course on Lua - but - I came back sufficiently interested to have a look at the language and what it can do. The language looks good, the technical spec well worked through, the language loaded easily onto my system. But - so far - I've not found too many easy get-going tutorials or simple examples. Which does tend to point to Lua as a prime candidate for our attention and if anyone would like to spend a couple of days having me explore it with them, to our mutual benefit, they would be pushing on an open door.

If you wonder, "Lua" means moon in Portuguese ... and the origin of the language is from Brazil.
