Since its inception in 1993, the Lua programming language has been a driving force in the computing landscape. Developed by Roberto Ierusalimschy, Waldemar Celes and Luiz Henrique de Figueiredo, Lua stood out for its simplicity, efficiency and versatility, making it a popular choice in several areas, such as games, embedded systems and web applications.
Its continuous evolution has brought significant achievements: extensive use in the video game industry, with renowned titles such as "World of Warcraft"; its incorporation into major projects such as the Apache HTTP Server and the Unity game engine; and its adoption by large companies such as Adobe, Cisco and NASA, evidencing its relevance in the development of robust and scalable solutions.
Today, upon completing 30 years, Lua celebrates a remarkable and promising legacy, boosting the creativity of programmers around the world and inspiring new generations to explore the vast universe of programming.
Congratulations, Lua, on three decades of success and contributions to the tech community!
