Lua is well known for its unique abilities as an embedded scripting language. Not only can developers extend their C applications with Lua, but with the proper interface, users can too! Designing APIs for both internal and external use can be tricky and require many iterations to "get it right".

Come and learn about how you can enable users to extend your C applications with Lua, as we explore many of the lessons learned about API design from Textadept's development.
