About Us

LuaConf is a one-day single-track international conference focused on the Lua programming language. Even though Lua was created in Brazil, since 2010 the Lua workshop has been held in foreign countries. It is time a local conference is held and, for this reason, LuaConf was created.

Last year, LuaConf was a huge success. We gathered speakers and attendees from all over the world with high quality technical content.

Our Mission

The goal of this event is to promote the Lua language, promote Brazilian technology and innovation and get Lua developers together.

  • Learn from experts
  • Network with professionals
  • Share your knowledge

We invite the Lua community to submit talks to LuaConf 2017. The CFP closes on March 11th. All topics Lua-related are welcome. Talks can be either in Portuguese or English. Talks will be 30 minutes long + 5 minutes of Q&A. Lightning talks of 10 minutes can be submitted and voted during LuaConf. All talks will be recorded and published on the internet. If you need help, we can advise for preparing your talk and help you rehearse, please get in touch. For the moment we cannot guarantee that we will be able to cover speakers' travel, accommodation or childcare, but if you are not financially able to get to Rio, please still submit your abstract, we are connecting with sponsors to make everything awesome. If your company is able to pay for your travel, please get in touch and we will kindly list them at the list of sponsors.
