Do you guys think “Programming in Lua, Fourth Edition” by Roberto Ierusalimschy is good for beginners? I would really appreciate some help.
You don’t have to buy it, you can just online it is a good book.
You can just read it online instead of buying it.
Actually online you can only read 68 pages out of 329. So I would buy the book.
I Have it online with 302 pages i think, i just want to know if its helpful for beginners
I’m also a beginner so yeh it would be good.
alright, thank you for the help bro
No Problem I love helping people😀.
Could be, but I feel like people overestimate how hard it is to get into scripting. I mean, personally I just watched youtube tutorials and it worked out fine.
(Also, fyi; roblox uses luau, not lua - a variation of lua)
So your saying Roblox has their own Lua Programming Language?
Yep. it is based off of Lua, but it has a few changes. You can find plenty of youtube tutorials for Luau (look up Roblox Programming tutorial or something)
Roblox Lua is a little more upgraded than normal lua it might be that the book wont cover some aspects of LuaU coding and game services.
So there aren’t any book about Luau? I heard some people say books are better than videos.
The way people learn something is entirely based on them - some might find videos easier, some might find books, tutors, whatever else easier. I would recommend trying videos first though since it’s free (alvinblox or the devking have some good tutorials for example)
Alrighty, I’ll see for myself. Thanks for the help!
This book will help for learning lua in scripting but I personally just use YouTube for scripts and stuff.
ugh books when I see it my vision becomes blurry.
you should get glasses.
bruh. You should get common sense. cuz what I said was a joke.
How was i supposed to detect it as a joke
