Lua Scripting Language Quick Start
Length: 49 minutes
Lua has become an extremely popular programming language, so much so that it's achieved a critical mass of developers in the game industry, meaning Lua skills are transferable from company to company. That's partly due to its speed and the ease with which developers can embed Lua into a game engine.
Steve Champagne takes the viewer through obtaining and installing Lua, Lua fundamentals, and step by step examples of Lua scripts, embedding Lua in a C/C++ application, and extending Lua.
