Lead Architect of the Lua Programming Language Joins Corona Labs’ Advisory Board
According to a recent press release, Roberto Ierusalimschy, Lead architect of the Lua programming language, has joined the Corona Labs’ Advisory Board.
If you’re new to the Lua programming language, you might be interested to know that Lua is used in a vast range of applications on mobile and desktop, including World of Warcraft, Adobe Photoshop Lightroom and Rovio’s Angry Birds, and is the leading language for developing interactive graphical games, eBooks and apps.
Ierusalimschy is an associate professor of informatics at Pontifical University in Rio de Janeiro (PUC-RIO) and the author of “Programming in Lua.” As an authority on Lua, Ierusalimschy has been invited to speak at the Game Developers Conference and to serve as a visiting professor at universities around the globe including Stanford University, International Computer Science Institute, and University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
Since the Corona SDK uses Lua as it’s programming language of choice, having Ierusalimschy on the board should give Corona Labs every advantage they need to strengthen the mobile development platform.
Corona SDK is used by over 120,000 developers around the globe to create rich, mobile content for all major app markets.
Congratulations Corona Labs!
