“Lua, the world’s most infuriating language”

Just a quick note to announce that we’ll be having the London Lua User Group meet up happening at the Mozilla London office this Thursday 17 October at 18.30h, and I’ve stepped up to host it!

Although I don’t use Lua these days I still have sympathy for it and I’m curious to hear about the latest developments. John Graham-Cunning will be telling us about balloons controlled with Lua and low latency firewalls.

If you don’t know John, he successfully campaigned to get the British government to apologise over their (mis)treatment of Alan Turing. He is also working on building an analytical engine, and many more interesting projects, so I’m pretty sure it’s going to be an interesting meeting!

Note: the title of this post is the title of the meetup. I haven’t titled it myself! I’ve added quotes to reflect this :-)
