When first confronted with Lua an experienced programmer (like me!) finds themselves infuriated by the languages little differences and hopes that can dismiss it as not worth learning :-) Later they find themselves infuriated to learn that they can't dismiss it: Lua is just too fast, too useful and too flexible. This talk will look at my experience of learning Lua and using it to send a high-altitude balloon into the stratosphere and build CloudFlare's new low latency WAF.

John Graham-Cumming is a Programmer at CloudFlare.
