Presenter: 

Koneki, an Eclipse Technology incubator project dedicated to Machine-to-Machine oriented tools and frameworks is delivering a first-class environment to develop using the Lua language.

The proposed talk will first introduce the Lua scripting language, and why you should consider using it, especially if you are developing video games or embedded applications!

We will then guide you through the advanced features of Lua Development Tools, in particular:

  • Integration of a complete debugger, leveraging DLTK DBGP support,
  • LuaDoc support,
  • Heuristics used to support development (code completion, static analysis, syntax highlighting, code navigation ...) for such a dynamic language as Lua.
