The first London Lua meetup was on 5 July 2012.
James Hurst (@pintsized) introduces OpenResty – offering Lua programming for the Nginx web server. This provides a powerful and very high performance web programming environment, with non-blocking i/o central to the design. Originally developed to power the largest e-commerce site in China, it has recently started to be more widely adopted.
The slides for the talk here now available.
