For 2023 - we are now fully retired from IT training.
We have made many, many friends over 25 years of teaching about Python, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, Java, C and C++ - and MySQL, Linux and Solaris/SunOS too. Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own risk.
Lisa and I (Graham) now live in what was our training centre in Melksham - happy to meet with former delegates here - but do check ahead before coming round. We are far from inactive - rather, enjoying the times that we are retired but still healthy enough in mind and body to be active!
I am also active in many other area and still look after a lot of web sites - you can find an index ((here))
Rules, suggestions, considerations for Lua variable names
for naming variables in Lua ...
* MUST start with a letter or underscore
* which MUST be followed by as many or as few letters, digits, underscores as you like
* Case sensitive (sound bite - "there are 52 letters in the alphabet"
* Variable names must NOT be Lua keywords
for naming variables in Lua
* Make variable names from relevant and appropriate words
* Keep variable names shortish but not too short to understand
* Have a CaPiTaLiSaTiOn standard
* Standardise on English or American spelling
* Also standardise on which abbreviations are used
the following when naming your variables
* Hungarian Notation (first letter gives type)
* In Lua (and in other languages) your variable names should assist your commenting. (written 2008-08-05)
