Lua Workshop 2017

The Lua Workshop 2017 will be held in San Francisco, CA, on October 16–17, 2017, courtesy of Mashape.

As in previous workshops (2005, 2006, 2008, 2009, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016), the main goal of the workshop is to allow the Lua community to get together and meet in person and talk about the Lua language, its uses, and its implementation.

The workshop is open to everyone interested in Lua. Register now to reserve a seat.

Please make your own travel and accommodation arrangements. Contact us if you need help or have special requirements.
