Lua, a misunderstood language

Lua is one of my favourite programming languages. I’ve used it to build a CMS for my old educational website, for creating cool IoT hardware projects, for building little games, and experimenting with network decentralisation. Still, I don’t consider myself an expert on it at all, I am at most a somewhat competent user. This is to say that I have had exposure to it in various contexts and through many years but I am not deep into its implementation or ecosystem. Because of that, it kinda pains me when I read blog posts and articles about Lua that appear to completely miss the objective and context of the language. Usually these posts read like a rant or a list of demands. Most recently, I saw a post about Lua’s Lack of Batteries on LWN and a discussion about that post on Hacker News that made me want to write back. In this post I’ll address some of the comments I’ve seen on that original article and on Hacker News.

A treta sobre devs de palco

This post is in Portuguese as it concerns the Brazilian dev community.

Recentemente teve uma treta na comunidade de devs do Brasil onde várias pessoas foram acusadas de serem “dev de palco”. Nesse post, vou comentar por que esse tipo de thread é uma imaturidade sem tamanho e o que eu acho que é um uso melhor do tempo e esforço de todo mundo.
