London Lua / Lua with Android using AndroLua

Please RSVP for instructions on how to join the event.

Description

AndroLua is a demonstration project by Michal Kottman which bundles Lua 5.1 and LuaJava as an application you can run on your phone or an emulator. The version I will demonstrate implements a simple TCP server so that one can open an interactive session on a host machine. Only weighing in at 260Kb, AndroLua provides access to most Android APIs directly through Java reflection. It is a good way to learn the capabilities of this OS without a time-consuming compile-upload-launch cycle, and Lua modules and other assets can be uploaded to a running program. I will show how the dynamic nature of Lua and its support for first-class functions makes Android application development more pleasant and productive.
