Lua may be the best language for portable, high-level code. Lua is small, cross-platform, and easy to integrate; it also happens to run quickly and is easy to learn. If you are working with an app based on C, C++, or Objective-C and would like to add a higher-level language for faster development, this webcast is for you. Tyler Neylon offers an introduction to Lua, outlines some of its benefits, and demonstrates how to use it to add a read-evaluate-print loop (REPL) to your app and Lua scriptability to an iOS app. No prior knowledge of Lua is necessary.
