Are you a Lua expert interested in teaching it?

Crossposting a message by @ljon at

Hello. I am a program officer at the Wikimedia Foundation.

I am looking for an expert in Lua programming in the context of wiki projects , who might be interested in teaching a full-day workshop in using Lua effectively on-wiki.

This would include teaching how to use some Lua features (including regular expressions), how to access the Mediawiki API from Lua, and concrete examples of modules and techniques achieving relatable, concrete results on-wiki.

If I find a candidate with a lot of experience and strong teaching skills (in English), I may fund this person’s travel and accommodation to teach such a workshop in Brazil.

Please express interest here, or refer people you think fit the description, so that they can express interest themselves.
