Why we teach Lua

Lua is - according to Tiobe Software - the 33rd most popular language. "The ratings are based on the number of skilled engineers world-wide, courses and third party vendors" they tell us.

So why do we choose Lua to teach? It's a niche language, and we specialise in niche languages. It's an open source language, and we specialise in open source languages. And for what it's use for, it's superb. And we enjoy teaching people about superb products.

Lua's niche is in tailoring products / languages / other software. Staring off very much in the world of computer games, it's now much more widely used - here's a list of products and games that I've found in the last hour or two, merged from multiple lists:

• 3DMLW • Adobe Photoshop Lightroom • Aerospike Database • Allods Online • Angry Birds (video game) • Apache HTTP Server • Aquaria (video game) • Artweaver • Awesome • BZFlag • Baldur's Gate • Bet On Soldier: Blood Sport • Blitzkrieg (video game) • Brave: The Search for Spirit Dancer • Brütal Legend • Bubble Ball • Buzz! • Celestia • Chaotic Rage • Cheat Engine • Cisco • Civilization V • Company of Heroes • Cortex Command • Crackdown • Creative Technology Zen X-Fi2 • Crowns of Power • Crysis • Damn Small Linux • Dark Role Play • Dark Souls • DarkSpace • Dead Hungry Diner • Demigod (video game) • Digital Combat Simulator • Diner Dash • Dolphin Computer Access • Don't Starve • Driver: San Francisco • Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup • Dungeons (video game) • EXperience112 • Empire: Total War • Enigma (video game) • Escape from Monkey Island • Etherlords • Eufloria • Evil Islands: Curse of the Lost Soul • Eyeon's Fusion compositor • FCEUX • Fable II • Far Cry • Flame • FlatOut (video game) • FlatOut 2 • Foldit • Foldit • Fortress Forever • FreePOPs • Freeciv • Freelancer (video game) • Freeswitch • Garry's Mod • Garrys Mod • Ginga • GrafX2 • Grim Fandango • Headhunter Redemption • Hearts of Iron III • Heroes of Might and Magic V • Homeworld 2 • Hyperspace Delivery Boy! • iClone • Impossible Creatures • Ipe • irccd • King's Bounty: The Legend • L.A.

Take a look at our range of Lua courses here. As the language is a niche one, we often travel far and wide to deliver this training - as well as courses in England, Ireland and Scotland I've been as far afield as Switzerland and Mexico to train. If you have three or more delegates to train, I'll come to you - ((almost)) anywhere in the world. But if there are just one or two of you, you'll probably prefer to come to our training centre in Melksham, Wiltshire, England - just over an hour from London's Heathrow airport, just under 100 miles from London itself, and very convenient for the midlands and the north.

Our training centre has delegate accommodation too - fitted out to four or five star hotel standard, and indeed we take bookings from leisure guests too at the weekend and we've Visit Wiltshire approved. See [here] for hotel details.

Every attempt was made to provide current information at the time the page was written, but things do move forward in our business - new software releases, price changes, new techniques. Please check back via our main site for current courses, prices, versions, etc - any mention of a price in "The Horse's Mouth" cannot be taken as an offer to supply at that price.
