Lua Essentials Training Course

Lua is a programming language that is both simple and powerful. Likely you have seen or heard of Lua being used in scripting and modifying video games - World of Warcraft and Angry Birds being two that most people know about. Perhaps more and more of us are bumping into Lua usage because the language is: 1. simple enough that brave non-programmers can read through the code and make changes 2. embeddable within big, pre existing systems or small less powerful devices 3. provides enough tools to do everything you need 4. is (pretty) easily extensible for when you need more power. This class is designed to introduce the Lua language and programming concepts that make working with the language even better.
