Where did you guys learn the language Lua?

 

I've been reading the 5.3 reference manual, but i'm worried that it is not a reliable source; it is a few years old, and I'm not sure how recently the syntax was updated. Thanks for the input. 

 

Here's the reference manual in case you want to check for relevance: https://www.lua.org/manual/5.3/manual.html

I am also just starting to study LUA.  After a bit of research I decided to go with the IDE zerobrane. Here are links to the resources i have found helpful so far. https://studio.zerobrane.com/

I also bought these 2 books :

Hope this helps:

Now that i have watched a few vids/tutorials and started to get an idea of how to implement lua. I just watched this Vid and used the link invideo to get the game script and play around with it in ZeroBrane .

As mentioned with another guy.

Good software to use.

 

And the latest book is:

Programming in Lua fourth edition, by the original creator of LUA. Roberto Ierusalimschy.

 

The old stuff is still applicable. New LUA just has a few extra functions and life improvements.

 

Outside of that. I suggest using google to look for things, there's a full stream of free and well written teaching materials out there.
