Local, instructor-led live Lua training courses demonstrate through discussion and hands-on practice how to get started programming in Lua and use Lua's versatility to develop solutions applications ranging from systems applications to games.
Lua training is available as "onsite live training" or "remote live training". Onsite live training can be carried out locally on customer premises in the UAE or in NobleProg corporate training centers in the UAE. Remote live training is carried out by way of an interactive, remote desktop.

As I had the benefit of one-on-one training, even without a fully flushed out course outline I was able to get many of the instructions I was looking to achieve. Adam has also provided additional material which in turn I've been using to expand some of the learning concepts.

Torch is an open source machine learning library and a scientific computing framework based on the Lua programming language. It provides a development environment for numerics, machine learning, and computer vision, with a particular emphasis on deep learning and convolutional nets. It is one of the fastest and most flexible frameworks for Machine and Deep Learning and is used by companies such as Facebook, Google, Twitter, NVIDIA, AMD, Intel, and many others.
In this course we cover the principles of Torch, its unique features, and how it can be applied in real-world applications. We step through numerous hands-on exercises all throughout, demonstrating and practicing the concepts learned.
By the end of the course, participants will have a thorough understanding of Torch's underlying features and capabilities as well as its role and contribution within the AI space compared to other frameworks and libraries. Participants will have also received the necessary practice to implement Torch in their own projects.

OpenResty is a full-fledged web platform that integrates Nginx, LuaJIT, and Lua libraries. It allows for the construction of high-performance web applications capable of handling 10K ~ 1000K+ connections in a single box. OpenResty is used by Alibaba, CloudFlare, and Tumblr, among others.
In this instructor-led, live training, participants will learn how to use OpenResty to build a number of demo solutions, including a web application, web service, and a dynamic web gateway.
By the end of this training, participants will be able to:
Turn an nginx web server into a web application server
Use the Lua programming language to script nginx C modules and Lua modules
Run server-side web applications completely inside the Nginx server
Integrate OpenResty with remote backends such as MySQL, PostgreSQL, Memcached, and Redis

Part lecture, part discussion, exercises and heavy hands-on practice
Lua is an easy to use scripting language that is used as an embedded plugin/extension language in different products. For example it is the embedded scripting language of network applications like nmap and wireshark, and can also be found as a scripting language in World of Warcraft, Orbiter and other games.
Lua can also be used as a standalone language. It is a lightweight, multi-paradigm programming language and therefore the course teaches various concepts that students will find useful in other areas of software engineering as well.
This course covers everything out there to know about Lua. We build up from the basic programming constructs, learn about advanced techniques and finally talk about embedding of Lua into other programming languages and embedding other programming languages into Lua. The course contains a lot of programming exercises, so that newcomers can gain proficiency with the language, starting from scratch.
