About This Class

Interested in learning programming?

The course "Introduction to Lua Programming" provides everyone, even complete beginners, the tools they need to start coding. Lua is one of the most beginner-friendly languages, and it is used all throughout the software industry, from web applications to game development.

The following topics are discussed within the course:

  • Variables
  • Conditional Statements (if, elseif, else)
  • Loops
  • Functions
  • Global vs. Local Variables
  • Tables
  • and more!

Everything you need to get started is available in this class. After all lessons are completed, a short project is assigned for students to apply what was learned and be creative with solving a real programming problem.

This is a well-done introduction to Lua programming. I learned BASIC about 44 years ago, and haven't done much programming since then. I did get stuck in the for/do portion of loops until my husband mentioned the for/next loops of old. That and realizing that Mr. Schaub misspoke at one point calling a 1 a 5. That being said, all-in-all a wonderfully taught class.
lua is very interesting and kyle explains things thoroughly
