I just wanted to let you know that I'll be at ESC Boston May 6th to provide an introduction to using eLua.
Here is the talk description from the conference site:
RAPID APPLICATION DEVELOPMENT WITH EMBEDDED LUA
James Snyder | Board Member and Core Developer, eLua Project
Date: Wednesday, May 6
Time: 9:00am - 9:45am
Pass Type: Conference Pass
Vault Recording: TBD
Audience Level: All
The Embedded Lua (eLua) project brings Lua, a high-level dynamic language and self-hosted development environment, to bare metal embedded hardware environments. We will provide an introduction to this permissively licensed open source project, a comparison with other available environments, details on how it can be integrated into prototyping and end-user customization contexts, lessons learned from real projects, and a live demonstration of using the project to accomplish a task.
Attendees will learn about the benefits and tradeoffs of eLua and other dynamic language environments, how they can get the project running on widely available and inexpensive development kits, and how they can integrate eLua into upcoming plans.
The intended audience includes existing or aspiring embedded developers who wish to use an interactive high level language for rapid application development or wish to provide such an environment to end-users or integrators. Some background in programming and embedded development is helpful but not required.
