Best source to learn Lua?

Post by Atroniac » Sat Jun 22, 2019 5:39 pm

Hello fellows, here for some advice. I want to spend my summer learning how to code in lua for game development. I have no prior experience in coding and have been trying to find some sort of tutorial on learning the basics and possibly more advanced technicalities of programming in the engine. If anyone has any sources or links that would be helpful, video guides if possible. :ultraglee:
Thanks in advance

p.s. I use Atom for making code, it has a lot of interesting shortcuts and tips and tricks for coding.

Well you can read through the official lua manual at:

or you can just google search "Lua scripting tutorial" and you will find everything you need :)
Lua is not very hard so you should learn the basics pretty fast
