In my talk I'll describe what traps and pitfalls I got into while trying to use Lua, which parts of Lua language and infrastructure are familiar for Perl programmer, and which ones are less so.
Topics that I'm going to cover (in more or less detail) are:
* Installation of Lua interpreter itself and necessary tooling to build and compile modules
* Infrastructure elements (installation of modules, documentation, etc)
* General overview of a language, similarities and differences to Perl
* More specific subjects like object-oriented programming and testing
