What is Lua?
Quote:

Lua is a powerful, fast, lightweight, embeddable scripting language.

Lua combines simple procedural syntax with powerful data description constructs based on associative arrays and extensible semantics. Lua is dynamically typed, runs by interpreting bytecode for a register-based virtual machine, and has automatic memory management with incremental garbage collection, making it ideal for configuration, scripting, and rapid prototyping.

"Lua" (pronounced LOO-ah) means "Moon" in Portuguese. As such, it is neither an acronym nor an abbreviation, but a noun. More specifically, "Lua" is a name, the name of the Earth's moon and the name of the language. Like most names, it should be written in lower case with an initial capital, that is, "Lua". Please do not write it as "LUA", which is both ugly and confusing, because then it becomes an acronym with different meanings for different people. So, please, write "Lua" right!

Official Lua Wiki:
http://lua-users.org/wiki/
The wiki has tons of examples, snippets, libraries and such which can come in handy when working on in depth projects.

Official Lua Mailing List:
http://www.lua.org/lua-l.html

Official Lua Forums:
http://forum.luahub.com/
The forums are a bit less then used. The Lua community still uses their mailing list more than the forums.
